FAI Hang Gliding and Paragliding Commission
IPPI Card: Finland
Is the IPPI-card accepted in your country ?
Yes, we've given our clubs instructions to ask for it if a foreign pilot shows up to their club.
What is the minimum legal coverage ?
It is not required by law, but all pg/hg pilots are members of the Finnish Aeronautical Association and we insure all pg/hg members up to 2 million FiM which is about 430.000 Euros.
What additional coverage does your country recommend (such as medical insurance, search and rescue etc...) ?
None. Only students need a small accident coverage.
Is your NAC prepared to provide a special insurance coverage for guest pilots who do not comply with your national law ?
We advice pilots to become members of the FAA.
