Paragliding Schools

Hang Gliding and Paragliding are governed by the United States Hanggliding and Paragliding Association (USHPA) under an exemption granted by the FAA. Newcommers to the sport need instruction, and a rating granted by USHPA.

The Rmhpa community stronly recomends starting your flying career with a local instructor. Using a local instructor gives you the opportunity to develop a mentor to guide you long after your formal training ends.
