At FFP, our specialty is getting you
certified through your "hang 2" foot-launch and
aerotow ratings (more advanced certifications are also
available). Many other flight-parks offer
great foot-launch instruction however often you miss out
on getting your aerotow rating. At FFP you get
both for about the same price or less
than you would spend at other flight parks.
States Ultralight Association governs ultralight use and
certifications in the USA. In fact they are the worlds
largest ultralight association. If you are interested in
learning to fly an ultralight you can contact Brad directly via e-mail
or you can write

Gliding Manufactures Association are the people who make sure
that hanggliders are air worthy. All modern hanggliders
must obtain HGMA certification or they are not considered safe.
Naturally all hanggliders flown at FFP exceed HGMA standards.
