Visiting Pilots


The Wings of Rogallo welcomes Visiting Pilots to fly our 3 sites.  Each site has it’s own requirements, outlined below.  Please feel free to email one of the site committee members or the Flight Director for additional information.

Visiting pilots must be members of USHPA, and are limited to 2 days per calendar year.  If you intend to fly our sites more than 2 days, we ask that you join our club for $30 annual fee.

Foreign Pilots

If you’re a foreign pilot, you’ll need to have a 30-day temporary USHPA membership available from an instructor, tandem pilot, or club officer for a nominal fee.  In addition, it’s generally advisable to have an IPPI card to assess your ratings.
