Welcome to the new IPP Official Thread!
We are IFVARB Approved
Hello, I’m Jonathan Limento Founder and CEO at IPP. It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the International Professional Pilots. Here in IPP, we always try to set our standard to the highest possible. The professionalism of our pilots, who go through their dedication and activity, continuously make our virtual organization goes forward. We are not just a virtual organization, we are a family! We strive to maintain a professional environment at all time, but most importantly, we aim to provide our pilots with the best and fun experience possible! On behalf of the entire staff in IPP, we look forward to seeing you in the team!
You’re probably wondering what our group is all about, so let us explain; International Professional Pilots (or IPP for short, cause who doesn’t love an acronym?) is a group of aviation enthusiasts who simply cannot get enough of the Infinite Flight Skies!
Founded in December 2017 and with members from all around the globe, we pride ourselves on being welcoming and friendly to anyone who wishes to join the family. And we mean family - our members are all supportive of each other and are always happy to help out where they can! We encourage a somewhat professional attitude most of the time. There’s always room for a bit of a laugh, so no need to worry about us being a super serious group!
There are plenty of Virtual Organization to choose from. Finding one could be difficult. So here’s a couple reason why should you join us.
IPP was founded with the intention of bringing pilots and air traffic controllers together in a fun environment - this is still visible today and is a big part of who we are. Arguably the best part of being a member of IPP is just that: being a member of IPP. As mentioned above, we really are just one big happy virtual family, only one made up aviation nuts!
We have over 100 active members from around the world. Our members include real world commercial and private pilots, plane spotters, IFATC, IFAET, pilots under training and everything in-between. So should you need advice on something aviation related, help is never far away!
At IPP, we have chosen and put together the best staff team. We work with a dedicated and passionate team who always go out to help anyone in need.

Something we pride ourselves on is our weekly events! You may have seen massive flights on our event! On every our event we always use Standard Instrument Departure / Standard Terminal Arrival Route charts to show professionalism and realism to the greatest extent possible for the best experience!
The internationality of our members means someone is always chatting away in our group chat. Group chat? That’s right! We communicate via Slack! It’s where our team goes to chat and fly, plan events and many other things.

Step two, theory lesson. Our trainer will give you theory lessons about ATC, flights, procedures, charts.
Step three, practical test. You will fly with our Trainer in a controlled airport. They will look out carefully to your ATC usage, pushback, taxi, takeoff, landing, lights usage.
Step four, written test. The Trainer will give you the written test via DM. You will have to reach at least 25/30 on the score to be able to pass the test. If you failed, you may re-take the test in 3 days.
Is there more after that? Nope! You’ve made it. You have now begun your journey in IPP!
