To fly hang gliders at Fort Funston you must display a current Funston sticker on your helmet. Stickers expire on December 31 of each year. A sticker application package consists of either a Clubhouse or Non-Clubhouse Member Application and the Club Rules.

To receive a helmet sticker you must:

There are two membership levels at Fort Funston; Clubhouse, and Non-Clubhouse. All stickered pilots are members of one type or the other:

  1. Non-Clubhouse Members: Non-Clubhouse members are pilots who just want to fly at Fort Funston, have agreed to the club rules and submitted a Non-Clubhouse Member Application. Non-Clubhouse member dues are optional but greatly appreciated!

  2. Clubhouse Members: Clubhouse members are pilots who want to fly and would also like a glider space in the Clubhouse, have agreed to the club rules and submitted a Clubhouse Member Application & Clubhouse Waiver. Clubhouse members must pay annual dues.

Sticker by Mail: Pilots who have already flown at Fort Funston and had a sticker in the past may renew their membership in advance and get a sticker by mail. This is the best way to not miss any flying! Note: Pilots who have never flown at Fort Funston must have a site intro before getting their sticker and are not eligible for sticker-by-mail until their second year. Please contact a club officer to setup a site intro.

To renew, please send in the following items:

  1. Either a signed Clubhouse, or Non-Clubhouse Member Application:
  2. Annual dues and/or optional donation (thank you!).
  3. A copy of your USHPA card.
  4. MUST INCLUDE: A self addressed stamped envelope. Please do your part by addressing your own envelope, thanks!
