I've been harping on the wonderful flying weather here at Quest
Air because it is pretty amazing that we can get the flying that we have been
getting near the end of December. And now the days start getting longer.
You may be hearing about the cold weather in the US, but it doesn't seem to have
much effect on this peninsula that pushed far... mehr

Mitch Shipley writes:
Two approaches used in 2017 to enhance safety are worth
highlighting and further development. First, Pilot Safety Forms were widely used
at the Hang Gliding World championships and proved very effective to learn about
and deal with safety issues that pilots encountered. Issues such as crowding
before the start gates and... mehr

USHPA proposes:
The US Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association proposes that the
number of hang glider pilots in any Category 1 event be limited to 100.There was a lot of concern at the worlds in Brasilia in August surrounding the

many was that 150 is just too... mehr

USHPA proposes:
4.1.3 Live Tracking
Live tracking is mandatory in Category 1 events and test events. Organizers may
request an exemption at the time of bidding. Using the live tracking information
as a strategic aid to pilots is an unsporting behavior. Mandatory Delay: In Hang Gliding, any publicly available feed provided
by the... mehr

Germany's reps propose:
The current rule of 1hour minimum flying time to validate a task
falls short. This way the meet director will always check the time and may be
compromised when deciding to stop a task, if the stop time falls around the 1h
limit. This decision should be grounded solely on safety.Also tasks which are not stopped but had... mehr

Basically the internet is full of exploits and various automated
