IPPHAs Pilots flying under Power have excellent sites made available to them through our negotiations with landowners. As a member you have access to all of these sites.

As a member you will have the advantage of free coaching from our club coaches.

In Ireland every year many pilots fly scores of hours without incident or injury. This is possible because of our club structure with regard especially to new beginner pilots coming into our sport.

Our friendly pilots, Instructors and Coaches are always there ready to assist novice pilots when inexperience and ignorance could expose them to serious danger.
