In the US, maintaining a rating as a pilot with USHPA means you can fly anywhere in the US and internationally with your credentials. Membership in to organization provides you your ‘drivers license’ in flight as well as $1m liability insurance that covers you as a pilot practically anywhere you fly.
The P2 rating is the necessary indicator for any pilot to fly independently. Feel free to peruse our basic syllabus to ensure you’re theoretical knowledge is filled in. Note, the file is a 75 page, 12mb pdf. It might take a moment so be patient!
