APPI ParaTrike was set up by Alex Ledger, a British Instructor, with the support of our sister association APPI. APPI ParaTrike’s Mission is to support the growing international ParaTrike community by offering high quality training, internationally recognised qualifications and an accident reporting system, thus making the sport safer while uniting it under one international banner. APPI ParaTrike is not a replacement to existing organisations, instead the system is flexible enough to be adapted by national associations. APPI ParaTrike works directly with National Associations around the world to provide high quality standards for their Pilots, Tandem Pilots and Instructors.

APPI started in Switzerland and is growing very fast in many countries. Paragliding and Paramotoring has never had the opportunity to grow and develop with so much safety and become united without borders. At present 3rd Party and Accident Insurance Insurance is available for all EU based APPI ParaTrike members. We are working on developing insurance for our worldwide members. For further information contact us.

If you are a professional ParaTrike Instructor or recreational pilot from a recognised National Association you can get your APPI ParaTrike license by equivalence. Applications can be made online. To affiliate your school contact us for further procedures.

APPI ParaTrike unites ParaTrike schools throughout the world by providing a large range of courses and programs which are identical from school to school. APPI ParaTrike is a modern and practical way of learning and teaching.
