Foreign Pilots

If you are interested in flying in Santa Barbara, please refer to our visiting Visiting Paraglider Pilots page for more info. All pilots flying at a Santa Barbara site need a USHPA rating, or an IPPI card.

For information on obtaining a USHPA rating equivalent to the foreign rating you have, look at the USHPA Foreign Pilot Policy.

If your foreign rating has expired, you will need to obtain a USHPA rating, which includes lessons at our training hill and an evaluation of your skills. USHPA ratings for former pilots are taken on a case by case basis. You could spend one day at the training hill, or 10. It depends on your skill level. Please contact us to discuss your situation.

If you currently have a foreign rating, and are interested in obtaining a USHPA rating with us, please provide us with the rating requirements of the national paragliding organization from which you received your rating.
