USPPA Grandfathering Policy: Accepting Instructors From Other Programs

USPPA policy on grandfathering from other programs & curriculums


Note that it is not legal for a USHPA tandem pilot to do powered tandems under the USHPA tandem program. This has been clarified by the USHPA.

For an active USHPA instructor with over 100 logged motor hours and/or 100 flights, the Instructor Administrator can waive:

  • 8 hours of the clinic, or
  • all of the clinic requirement if the applicant is 1) recommended by another USPPA instructor (in addition to the one recommendation already required) and 2) applicant receives approval of the training committee.
  • All of the apprenticeship requirement.

 

An active PPG BFI (ASC/EAA) with over 100 logged motor hours and/or 100 flights can waive:

  • 8 hours of the clinic requirement and
  • all of the apprenticeship requirement if recommended by another USPPA instructor that states he should be allowed to waive the apprenticeship requirement (a total of 2 recommendations).
