If this is your first time to join the IHPA then WELCOME! We hope that you will use this website and our mailing lists to make the most of your sport, to learn as much as you can, to make contact and friends with our many members all around the country, and to help you continue your development as a pilot by safely progressing through the Pilot Rating System.
Please read the Flight Safety pages carefully and pay particular attention to the Rules of the Air!
All pilots are required to provide verifiable evidence of their qualifications (a national licence, rating or IPPI card.) Pilots without any verifiable pilot qualification or rating are required to undertake an assessment before they may free fly in Ireland.
Student pilots are required to provide contact details for the school at which they have or still are training with. Student pilots who have trained abroad will be credited with any rating achieved but are required to continue their training in a school environment here in Ireland until they have attained the minimum Para Pro 3 (Novice Pilot) rating required to free fly here in Ireland.
Please contact the IHPA Training & Flight Safety Officer for details.
Annual membership normally costs just €40, but as you are going to be our newest member we would like to welcome you into the IHPA by waiving your subscription fee until March 31st, when all pilots renew their membership! Just download the Membership Forms below, print them out, fill them in and sign them (you'll need a witness) and return them, along with a passport style photo and your insurance policy details to:
