Landing Zones

Usage Rules

Landing Zones are a tricky business and mostly we like to keep them private but sharing them can be good for others visiting your area and improve safety.  Here are the guidelines you should follow.

  1. Check with the WPPA member that took the risk to recommend the site in the first place.  They may want to contact someone or just make you aware of the dangers with that specific LZ.  Either way we don't want to ruin a good thing.
  2. Always be respectful of the landowner and ask permission yourself whenever possible.  Emphasize how you intend to fly safely and respect others.  Reference Wisconsin State Code 895.52 if necessary.
  3. Try just kiting at the site first so the owner is not intimidated right off.

How can we support our LZ landowners?

IDEA: What if we held an "end of year" dinner in honor of LZ sites willing to be listed on our site?  I've heard snowmobilers do something similiar.  Is this something you'd be willing to organize?  Contact
