Since 1975 the Arizona Hang Gliding & Paragliding Association (previously known as AHGA) has served our free flight community in the Grand Canyon State. Membership supports operations at South Mountain, Shaw Butte, Humbolt, Mingus Mountain, Apache Maid, Elden and The Craters. AZHPA is a local chapter of USHPA and maintains insurance requirements for many of our permitted sites. Please respect and be aware: Flying AZHPA sites requires membership, and we make it easy, so click below to start flying today.
