Welcome to APPI

Welcome in the world of Paragliding



    • APPI and the Chinese government representative for the Airsport ASFC have had their first meeting and begun to collaborate to improve their paragliding education system. ASFC is in the process of developing the Chinese system and discovering a way to join the international standard of APPI.
    • The new generation of Chinese people are looking for outdoor sports, fresh air and nature. China change! China move! China fly!
    • I assure you there are several places to fly and to discover China, and they now welcome YOU.
  • Creation of APPI PG Pedagogical Committee

    The role of this committee is to take decisions about education system, contents of courses, exams, educational manuals, the choice of APPI masters, to black list members, to manage the complaints not resolved by the secretary, and to propose amendments to the internal rules about the pedagogical choices for Paragliding activity.

    Use this forum to discuss with the committee members on education topics.

Join APPI by Equivalence 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.
