How to set a Record

IPPI Card: Slovakia

 

We recognize the IPPI cards but only on association level. IPPI is not issued by law. That means our instructors, site managers and event organizers are recognizing IPPI proficiency and experience levels, but it doesn't allow foreign pilots to fly legally in Slovak airspace. 

Those who want to fly legally in Slovakia should follow instructions on our website.

http://www.laa.sk/flying-of-foreign-pilots-over-the-area-of-slovak-republic/

Applications should be issued promptly (few working days).

Minimum required legal insurance coverage is 16600€ (third party liability). We recommend standard medical insurance and emergency-rescue insurance including helicopter coverage.
