FAI Hang Gliding and Paragliding Commission
IPPI Card: Cyprus
Is the IPPI Card accepted in your country ?
Hang-gliding and Paragliding are, so far, NOT regulated by the Authorities in our country. We fly mostly out of public uncontrolled land. Therefore though the card is welcome, it is not mandatory. It is a good mean of introducing visiting pilots to the local "coaching" pilots.
What is the minimum legal insurance coverage required in your country ?
In practice, nil/undefined. However Civil & Penal Law applies. In case of damage to property, the pilot at fault will be liable to pay damages.
What additional coverage does your country recommend (such as medical insurance, search and rescue etc...) ?
It is up to each pilot to decide on the coverage he requires.
Is your NAC prepared to provide a special insurance coverage for guest pilots who do not comply with your national law ?
