USHPA Certifications

USHPA Hang Gliding I

Beginner Rating

This rating allows the hang gliding pilot to fly solo at Hang I rated sites or low altitudes. You must also demonstrate three consecutive landings within 100' of a target (landing on feet into wind).

USHPA Aero-Tow Hang Gliding I

Beginner Rating

Aerotow is a technique by which a hang glider is towed to altitude by a powerful ultralight aircraft. This rating shows that the hang gliding pilot has a working understanding of towing hang gliders behind ultralights. After multiple solo flights demonstrating safe, consistent piloting skills and good judgment, you will receive your aerotow sign-off, which gives you the right to come out and tow unsupervised This does not let the pilots fly solo.

USHPA Aero-Tow Hang Gliding II

Novice Rating

This rating allows the hang gliding pilot to fly solo at altitude. Progression to more difficult flying conditions continues under the supervision of more experienced pilots or Observers/Advanced Instructors. At the end, you must pass the practical and written exam to obtain your USHPA certification.
