Want To Learn How To Fly?

Learning to fly will take some time and effort. Look at it this way: walking is something we were designed to do, and how long did it take you to learn to do that? Then again birds can fly and they have tiny little bird brains. Talk to one of our instructors (links on the left) to learn to hang glide or paraglide. Either way, get ready for an adventure that will last you the rest of your life.

A comprehensive list of FAQs is available from the U.S. Hang Gliding & Paragliding Association

About AZHPA

Since 1975 the Arizona Hang Gliding & Paragliding Association (previously known as AHGA) has represented free flight pilots in the Grand Canyon State. Our members share a fanatical interest in soaring hang gliders and paragliders, the sites we fly from, and 'the life' we all live. Sometimes we launch by running off a mountain into the blue (foot launch) or we can be towed aloft by an ultralight or a ground-based unit, but to us it's all the same: Get me up so I can play in the most amazing playground ever known to man!
