IPAF has issued the one millionth PAL Card (Powered Access License or Powered Access Licensed Registration in North America) under its voluntary, industry-led operator training program. The program has been certified by TÜV as conforming to ISO 18878.
“The secret of the PAL Card’s success is the guarantee that the training and testing is delivered to consistent standards worldwide by highly motivated and qualified instructors,” said IPAF CEO Tim Whiteman.
To celebrate the milestone, IPAF is inviting all valid PAL Card holders to enter a prize drawing. The PAL Card expires after five years, and there are currently more than 500,000 valid PAL Cards worldwide.
There will be five top prizes for verified operators.
