    This is the APPI spirit!


Everyday, more and more paragliders are joining APPI !

There are now APPI members in 93 different countries !!!

Join APPI Join APPI for free, you can become a member without being certified, but only an APPI instructor can certify your level for paraglider pilots, or an APPI master for instructors.

APPI provides a paragliding license based on a high level of paragliding, and an education system that is recognized internationally among all APPI schools worldwide, and partner Associations and Federations.

APPI certification awarded to a pilot is internal to the APPI system, and shows no particular right in the country where the activity is done, unless APPI is recognized by the legal authority managing free flight in that country. Check with the local federation if such an agreement exists.

In some countries, APPI is recognized as the official education system.

Your paragliding activity (solo, tandem, instruction) must comply with the laws of the country in which it is performed.

APPI strongly recommends its members to be insured to paraglide, and in case of an accident, APPI does not accept any liability.

All EU Schools and EU tandem pilots must hold Third Party Liability Insurance.
