Kiting

Forums: 

A friendly reminder to PG pilots that hang gliders need a lot more of the LZ to do a landing than you do and kiting is supposed to be done on the perimeter of the LZ. It is not helpful to be standing right in the geographic center of the LZ, even if your wing is on the ground. Course correcting a hang glider on final is not nearly as easy as a PG.

There is one advantage of PGs kiting in the LZ.  If a hang glider is coming in fast on final and is quickly running out of LZ, the guy kitting can pop up his paraglider and snag the hang glider and prevent him from overshooting the LZ.

 On second thought.

 

Forget it....
