To promote and evolve ISPO, resources are needed. All ISPO-certified Pilot Organizations can indicate whether they want to be a participating member of the IUG. ISPO cannot exist without ideas from member organizations, maintenance, publicity and back-office functions.
Although IUG membership is not mandatory, it is highly recommended for that pilot organizations who are ISPO certified to become a member of the IUG. Input on the development of the standard can be obtained through this IUG membership. The standard is for pilots by pilots. At the annual meeting of Associates, every member organization has the right to vote on proposals for the improvement of the standard.
