Kite Safety

 

Always keep your kite under control. Check to make sure that your kite and lines are in good condition,
that the kite is properly assembled, and that the lines are securely attached to the kite and handles.

  Permitted line lengths vary in different areas. If in doubt, contact local authorities before flying.

Never fly a kite in winds over the maximum recommended wind speed for that kite. Doing so will
endanger bystanders and could damage the kite.

Never fly a kite on a busy beach or field. The kite could fall on a bystander and cause injury.

Fly with bystanders behind you. This will help prevent injury and provide the maximum safety to bystanders.

Keep your distance from other kite pilots. Lines can become entangled and cut, not only causing damage
to the kites, but also endangering the pilots and bystanders.

Do not fly in areas that will be a nuisance to others. Respect the rights of those around you.

Never fly in dangerous weather conditions or near high voltage lines. This could cause electrocution.

Never fly a kite near airfields or busy streets. Serious accidents could occur.

Never fly a kite in national preserved areas. Respect wildlife.
