As we all know, flying isn't all slipping the surly bonds of Earth and dancing the skies on laughter-silvered wings. Making flying fun and affordable requires a little bit of bureaucracy, but luckily this website is your one-stop shop for reimbursements, requests, and references. Except it's not really a shop, because everything is free (the forms, that is). But you get the idea...right?
If you are unsure of the process for filing a reimbursement or a rebate, or you don't know how to request approval for an overnight cross-country, read on!
According to PPI Regulations, all flights over 24-hours must receive prior approval from at least 3 members of the executive board. To request permission, follow the steps below.

Although Purdue Aviation has stopped lending headsets following the COVID-19 pandemic, PPI stills own four headsets that are available to be shared at Purdue Aviation. This is great for when you want to take passengers on the club planes. Simply show the front desk your membership card, and ask to borrow one of the four PPI headsets.
Many of our members work on their IFR training in our airplanes. As part of that training (or even practice when you're already certified), you can fly with a "safety pilot"; he or she will keep their eyes outside while you practice your IFR skills under the hood. Since this can be a tricky situation when it comes to logging time and paying the bill, we've put together a guide for you!
