We’re going to start putting together a poster for the LZ to make kiting procedures more clear (since it looks like a lot of pilots aren’t reading any of the site briefings – unfortunately, not much we can do about that), in addition to the diagram of both PG and HG approach patterns. Key points (needs editing to be more concise, but this is the gist):

  • If there are pilots in the air in the general vicinity, stay southwest of the PG cone (or cones, if we add more)
  • If pilots are making their downwind, base, or final approach, or otherwise getting low over AJX, ground all wings
  • If you’re a spectator and see wings up and a pilot on approach, let the kiting people know (shout, ring the bell, make some noise, etc)
