DISCLAIMER: USHPA Certification of an instructor means that the instructor has completed a course of training with USHPA and successfully completed both practical and written testing concerning this training. Just like a university who offers a degree after completion of certain courses, USHPA makes no warranty or representations as to the expertise or aptitude of any USHPA certified instructor other than to verify that he or she successfully completed a training course with USHPA.

Instructors have been certified through USHPA's instructor training program and must meet recertification requirements every 3 years.


PASA Schools have been certified by the Professional Air Sports Association (PASA) and are a collection of USHPA-certified instructors that have met additional safety requirements and hold supplementary insurance.

Non-PASA Schools have not been certified by PASA, but are staffed by USHPA certified instructors.
