IPPI Parapro Equivalence conversion

The aim of this page is to show the IPPI parapro equivalence between various international licences
​​

The IPPI card IS NOT A LICENCE in itself.

It is designed as a quick means for officials to verify qualifications ( details here : http://www.fai.org/civl-our-sport/ippi-card )

You MUST HAVE a VALID LICENCE AND CLUB MEMBERSHIP to be used alongside the IPPI card.

RASAT ParaPro 1 ParaPro 2 ParaPro 3     (11/08/2017)
Given inconsistency in the issue of RASAT ratings, the HKPA Safety, Training, and Education Committee (STEC) unanimously passed a motion to cap RASAT equivalence at HKPA Club Pilot level. All RASAT visitors are welcome to fly in Hong Kong at a level appropriate to their IPPI rating as the motion only affects the issue of an equivalent HKPA rating to HKPA members.
