Rated Pilots

Are You a Rated Pilot and Want to Fly with Us?

*Must be a current member of the USHPA

  • Hang Gliding I or higher rated pilots can fly on the dunes at Jockey’s Ridge State Park. You can either bring a glider or demo one. All rentals on equipment are handled by our Hang Gliding School, though you must obtain a permit from the park.
  • Hang Gliding II with tow ratings or higher rated pilots can fly at our Aero-Tow facility at the Currituck County Airport seasonally (generally April – October). You can be towed up to 2000ft or higher by an ultralight sport aircraft. You can either bring a glider or rent one from us. All rentals for the Aero-tow are handled by the Hang Gliding School at the Airport.
  • Pilots wishing to aero-tow without USHPA sign-off will be required to fly with an instructor at least once to verify skills (at the tow instructor’s discretion). Pilot must be Hang II rated or higher.
