The Open Sky Tandem Pilot rating is the first step to become an APPI Professional member.
 During their training, candidates review APPI Standards, procedures and general related issues.
 As well, candidates review their practical flying ability, general procedures and paragliding knowledge. Open Sky Tandem Pilots are allowed to fly with insured pilots only for non-commercial flights.

To participate and complete an Open Sky Tandem Pilot Program an individual must:

  1. Be certified as an Advanced Pilot, with APPI or another recreational paragliding training organization, for at least one year.
  2. Present SIV Certification, within the past 6 months.
  3. Be at least 18 years old.
  4. Have a good medical record (stated on the health form), and be in a state of health which is fit for paragliding as a profession.
  5. Have completed a five day Tandem Basic Course, including minimum 10 flights with the Tandem Instructor Examiner.
  6. Submit proof of First Aid training (Red Cross or other rescue organization equivalence).


Open Sky Tandem Pilots candidates must satisfactorily complete all course performance requirements. To apply for certification, the certifying APPI Instructor submits online a completed, validated Open Sky Tandem Pilot Application to APPI website, along with the required photo, application fee and other qualifying certification documentation. Upon approval of the application, APPI will issue an APPI Certification Card. Note: Open Sky Tandem Pilot Course has a 2 year validity, for candidates who want to enroll in an APPI Tandem Pilot Course and validate Certification. If certification expires, the course must be repeated (safety rules and APPI quality standards).
