APPI PPG


Recommended Posts

Anybody got any views on this?

Last week the APPI PPG website finally went live! Alex has been writing the syllabus for all PPG courses, from Beginner and Intermediate students right up to Tandem Pilots and Master Instructors. APPI PPG is the first international Paramotoring organisation and is similar to PADI for scuba diving in the sense that it is designed to bring everyone together under one roof. It is currently free to join and we can transfer any existing license or training over to an APPI PPG license. To do this please contact Alex.

No doubting Alex's great experience and skill as an instructor, and the idea of an internationaly recognised standard for paramotoring is laudable - but only time will tell as it is just an idea and collection of letters at the moment, for all the grand claims on the website.

We already have another 'world champion' pilot with a similar scheme - the WPPGA :wink::roll::lol:

Anyone can set up credible sounding schemes and I know a few people who trained as pilots only to find their BHPC 'qualification' was worthless.

Will this scheme offer any significant improvement on an FAI, IPPI or Parapro equivalence rating, or just appeal to badge collectors and instructors wanting to befuddle new clients with fancy sounding accronyms ? Only if globally adopted and accepted - but even in the UK we have different groups representing the same sport, so it doesn't seem likely.

Not knocking the idea, which appears to be a well meant attempt to solve a real issue, but I won't be rushing to apply for APPI membership just yet .....

I don't have any details on anything to do with APPI, just saw it on the Skyschool web & wondered if anyone had any views.

Right Cheers Richard.

sounds good on the site but not sure about the practicalities of it in the real world, :?
