Rules and Policies
We welcome your membership to ProPilotWorld.com. As with any website, there
are rules and policies governing its use and we ask that you please carefully and completely read our rules and policies.
By accessing this website, you accept, without limitation or qualification,
the following Terms of Service. You are only authorized to use this website
and its services if you agree to abide by all applicable laws and to these Terms
of Service. If you do NOT accept the Terms of Service, then please
discontinue your use of this website immediately. We may modify these Terms of Service from time to time and such
modification shall be effective upon posting on the website. You agree to be
bound to any changes to these Terms of Service when you use this website
after any such modification is posted. Is it important that you review these
Terms of Service regularly to ensure you are updated as to any changes made.
These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement regarding your use of
this website and the services it offers and supersede any such prior terms.
Access to ProPilotWorld.com is restricted to persons holding a Commercial Pilot Certificate or higher (Professional Flight Engineers, Air Traffic Control Specialists and Licensed Dispatchers are accepted as well). The intent of this site is to cater to the needs and desires of pilots who make their living in the aviation industry. For access to ProPilotWorld.com, you will be required to give your full name (exactly as it appears on your pilot certificates)
during registration, this information will be verified with the FAA database to confirm identity and credentials. This information will also be cross-referenced with the name used on the payment method to complete the confirmation of identity. Only the Administrators will have access to a member's full name; the Forum Leaders (Moderators) or general membership will NOT have access to this information, this information is only used to verify membership eligibility. If a member can't be verified via the FAA Database, an alternate method to verify identity/credentials will be offered.
Memberships are limited to one per individual, re-registering or registering multiple accounts is strictly prohibited. Memberships are controlled by a member's real identity and are verified accordingly.
Any membership obtained by persons not meeting our membership requirements will
be terminated without refund. Memberships obtained using false information will be considered fraudulent and
may be subject to local, national and international electronic media laws.
We offer the opportunity for limited "Associate Memberships" for people who have something of value to offer our membership but do not meet our membership requirements. These "Associate Memberships" are approved on their own merits on a case by case basis. If you have something to offer the PPW Membership and are interested in obtaining an "Associate Membership", please feel free to contact the site Administrator at CustomerService@ProPilotWorld.com and present compelling evidence as to why you should be eligible for an "Associate Membership".
The Rule of Two
Do not post content which could put yourself, ProPilotWorld.com, LLC or its
agents, the Forum Leaders, or other members in possible legal jeopardy. This would include, but not be limited to libelous remarks about an individual or a company, posting an individual's name, image and/or personally identifying information without their express permission, posting a "scab list" or posting any information that is copyrighted, proprietary or of a security nature.
Each member will assume full and unconditional responsibility for what they post on this website. Violation of this rule may result in termination (without refund) of your ProPilotWorld.com membership.
Do not post (or send via our Private Message System (PM)) material which would cause an average, reasonable, professional pilot to not want to join the (or continue a) ProPilotWorld.com membership. This would include, but not be limited to, personal attacks or insults, name calling, vulgarity, sexual harassment, racial or ethnic remarks, or threats. If posting images, please make sure they are "work/family friendly", many members browse our forums with children present. Simply put, please conduct yourselves like professionals and treat other members with respect. Just because you are communicating via an electronic medium does not mean you can leave your courtesy or common sense at the door, treat others as you would treat them if you were face to face with them in person.
While we will make every effort to allow members to express themselves in
their own way, any member who breaks the above rules will be warned and asked to
adjust their behavior accordingly. A habitual breaking of the above rules
will result in the termination of membership without refund. We expect the
membership to conduct themselves as respectful individuals and professionals in
If an Administrator or Forum Leader has to take action regarding a post, the author will be contacted by Private Message
(PM) and informed in a collegial and respectful manner. The Administrators of ProPilotWorld.com reserve the right to edit or remove any post that is deemed to violate either of the above rules or is not considered in the "spirit" of ProPilotWorld.com. The decision of the Administrators and Forum Leaders is final.
There is no automatic language censor, anything that you wish to say will be displayed. With this freedom, however, comes a certain responsibility. Just because you can say anything doesn't mean you should. If there is a point that you are making and nothing but the use of a good expletive will suffice, use it. That being said, please use them sparingly so that their impact is retained- and please, do not use them directed at another member. Fair enough?
There is no Penalty Box. Members who choose not to abide by the rules and policies outlined here and continue to disobey the rules will be denied access to ProPilotWorld.com and their membership will be revoked. Membership fees are not refundable, nor will access to membership be granted for a period of six months following membership revocation. Memberships are based upon a member's real name, not their usernames and are controlled accordingly. A members real name is required at registration for verification purposes only, the only people who have access to a members real name are the Administrators. Forum Leaders (Moderators) and the general membership do not have access to a members real name. Members who falsify their registration information will be immediately barred from ProPilotWorld.com without refund.
ProPilotWorld.com encourages the free flow of information and dialog. To that end, we encourage members to treat other members with respect, even though they may be in disagreement. We encourage all participants to keep posts on-topic and civil, within the sometimes irreverent confines of professional pilots. In other words, try to post using a bit of the "Golden Rule".
The Administrators or Moderators of ProPilotWorld.com reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any
post or thread for any reason. The Private Message (PM) system may not be used for sending unsolicited advertisements of any type. A member found to be in violation of any of
our Terms of Service may have their membership terminated. Due to the nature of our service

not available, regardless of reason.
