USPPA will reimburse part of a pilot's training cost when they
achieve their PPG2 rating within limits listed below. The
goal is to encourage thorough training through complete use of the
syllabus, simulators, ground work and skill building. Amounts reimbursed are: From no
rating to PPG2 is $100.
1. Use a current and qualified USPPA PPG Instructor to get training for the rating you desire and qualify for. The USPPA syllabus must be used and filled out for each rating obtained. Pass the tests, accumulate the requisite experience and demonstrate the specified skills. For the PPG2, our basic pilot rating, those are pretty straight forward. The most difficult is that you must consistently be able to land, after a power-off glide from 300 feet high, within 40 foot of a target.
Instructor payment is up to you and it doesn't have to be the same instructor as who gave you all your training, but the one that gave you the rating must fill out the reimbursement form.
2. Pilot submits the following:
B. Signed reimbursement request form. This must be signed by you and the instructor testifying that training was given, the syllabus was used and that payment was made to the instructor.
C. Copy of the first syllabus page for each rating obtained showing that it was properly filled out.
3. A check will be sent within approximately 30 days to your address as listed in our membership file.
4. The pilot seeking reimbursement must actually pay for training that is equal to or greater than what is claimed on the rebate. It is reimbursement for training actually paid.
Any powered paraglider pilot is eligible. Non-USPPA members must join concurrently with the application. You can submit your membership application payment simultaneously with the reimbursement application, including membership payment.
We are using a combination of general funds and charitable donations, the largest of which came from the Parastars club in 2006. The program will continue until funds devoted to it ($20,000) are used up which means it will likely go through 2010.
If you are interested in promoting training by contributing to this program, USPPA can accept tax-deductible donations for this purpose.
