An agreement for kite flying on the Isle of Man
After submitting a formal proposal, I have today obtained a personal permit for kite flying here. There are, of course, some restrictions that include: when flying above 400' I must include a separate observer to look out for aircraft; no flying at all within a Restricted Zone that encompasses the southern half of the Island, plus some way out to sea; there must always be line of sight to the kite; there are agreed weight limits on the kite and suspended gear. Finally, I must keep a log of each flight, with altimeter records if available, and this log can be inspected at the CAA's request.
The Manx CAA have been very helpful and I am very happy to comply with their wishes. Onwards and upwards with happy LEGAL flying and thanks again to this Forum for prompting me in this direction.
