Please take the time to review All the SDHGPA Site Guides. This year most Site Guides were updated based on our Annual Risk Assessment Review. Many of the sites have had their Site Ratings changed in addition to site safe flight operating perimeters being updated.
What to do on a windy Blown out Day?
And before heading out to fly any other day?
For instance, Palomar is now listed as: Minimum Ratings: H3 / P3 - (M1 to Bail out LZ; M2 to Main LZ); or H2 / P2 with other higher rated pilots present, site briefing for the day, and instructor sign off.
Also as a Reminder:
If you are an Instructor or School, please also review all Site and Instruction Protocols that include all Tandem Flight at all SDHGPA Sites. Note that any and all Instruction or Tandem Flights from or to any SDHGPA Launch or Landing Zones / LZs must comply with our Site Protocols. By not doing so puts the Site, Land Owners, SDHGPA, Students, and yourself at risk and violates SDHGPA flight SOPs.
