About Us

BAPA as an organization is dedicated to keeping local pilots informed and safe, but of course this information is freely available to ensure broad distribution. Joining BAPA helps defray the costs of maintaining local sites and publishing the newsletter; however, most importantly, joining BAPA supports the efforts of the organization in educating and supporting paragliding pilots in the Bay Area.

The Bay Area Paragliding Association (BAPA) is an organization of paragliding pilots and enthusiasts. The charter of the club is to promote and encourage the sport of paragliding. BAPA is a registered chapter of the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (PC006). We currently have over 140 active members.

BAPA is a 501(c)7 nonprofit organization governed by Bylaws, last modified in March 2011 and available as an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) document.
