IPPI 5 card is obligatory
Some people have been asking whether it’s absolutely necessary to present the IPPI 5 card at registration. And the answer is – yes, all foreign pilots flying a paragliding competition taking place in Slovenia must hold an IPPI 5 card. It is stated very clearly in the following Safety Directive issued by the Slovenian Civil Aviation Authority:
Foreign pilots participating in cross-country flying competitions, regardless of the organizer of the competition and the country organizing the event, within the Slovene territory, shall hold a national licence and have to comply with the requirements of the IPPI Safe/Para Pro Stage 5, implied by Paragrah 1 of the Safety Directive.
So, the documents, that you have to present at registration are following:
– national licence
– FAI licence
– IPPI 5
– medical and third party insurance
