Home Forums Safety “Landing” field safety Reply To: “Landing” field safety


Pointing out a safety concern is not whining.  I had a bad landing 4 years ago.  Jonathon, you had a bad landing last year (2 years?).  Both you and I would have collided with a kiting pilot if the field had been covered as in the video.  When I was on approach that day I thought I had my landing under control, I am sure you thought the same.  Following good practices is what allows us to mess up and come out with a broken arm rather than colliding with another pilot and risking more serious injury to two individuals.

Jana’s pictures  look good.  Maybe truncate the kiting area a little on the east edge to keep an overshoot path open.   The point of my original post was that there was no way an overshooting HG would have been able to make the bailout without colliding with a PG.
