The United States Powered Paragliding Association (USPPA), is a non-profit organization based in the United States that endeavors to support a segment of ultralight aviation known as powered paragliding.

Founded in 2001, it has recently partnered with the much larger United States Ultralight Association (USUA) to better serve the community.

Its primary effort is a training program with pilot ratings that recognize different levels of accomplishment.
