CAUTION: Due to the relatively large number of APPI certification cards not received, especially in Asia and South America, we have added the possibility to print yourself the card only for affiliated members from your APPI account page.
We advise you to do it rather than order the card from APPI.
Another solution is to request a shipment by international express carrier (dhl, fedex, chronopost ...), but considering the high cost of this shipment, you must then pay extra (20 € to 40 € depending on the destination). In this case, ask to the secretary.
The best solution for schools is to request the sending of cards to your school, as soon as this number reaches 15 cards, we will send your cards at no additional cost by international express carrier.

APPI makes you HAPPY!

APPI provides a paragliding license based on a high quality 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. Your paragliding activity must comply with the laws of the country in which it is performed. Check with the local federation if such an agreement exists, in some countries, APPI is the official education system.
