Thanks John! I asked Stephen and Dan for advice before putting the diagram together. I made changes to it a few times before we finally posted it online, and Jordan helped me refine it by bringing the figure 8’s closer to the grass so that people aren’t losing altitude low over the house.

Stephen taught me how to fly and I watch him teaching new people all the time. He’s always asking us to make our turns between the house and the white fence, so that we don’t stray too far toward the hang glider approach, or into the power lines located just past the white fence. I don’t always get the turns perfect, nobody is expected to do that, but I definitely do my best to make my turn before the hang glider hill so that there’s no risk of collision.
