John Kangas up in Idaho would be a good addition to the USHGRS list of pilots.

You may also find some other leads for USHGRS ratings here:

After a discussion with Joe Faust, I've asked the US Hawks Board to approve a forum to collect the individual pilot topics that Joe has been posting to the history section. These can link to each pilot's USHGRS page (as Joe has recently been doing). They can also provide an easier way for pilots to make information available to the USHGRS team.

Update: The U.S. Hawks Board passed the motion on January 24th, 2019.

With the last revision USHPA did, I dont know how anyone can become in instructor. 


Listen to the deep concern from Jack Axaopoulos alias "sg":

Damn... hard to imagine the logic of putting up MORE entry barriers like this in a sport that is struggling this much already.

Liar.

Jack Axaopoulos is a master at putting up entry barriers in hang gliding. Just look at the people and ideas he's silenced:

1) Jack Axaopoulos silenced Scott Wise when Scott was building the HGAA as its Chairman. The HGAA was intended to be an alternative to USHPA, but Jack killed it.

2) Jack Axaopoulos bans all mention of either the US Hawks or the Torrey Hawks. Both organizations have a long history of working to promote hang gliding.

3) Jack Axaopoulos banned the only USHPA Regional Director working to get fair representation for hang gliding at Torrey Pines.

4) Jack Axaopoulos banned Joe Faust. Joe Faust has been promoting hang gliding long before Jack even knew how to spell it.

5) Jack Axaopoulos bans all mention of USHGRS. USHGRS is an approach to solve the rating stranglehold of USHPA, but Jack won't even allow that acronym to be posted on hanggliding.org.

Yet Jack writes:
