Ban on kiting??
I got my mates back in Swiss kiting on Lac Leman all the time. They have not heard anything about this "ban on kiting" or have had any problems so far. Lets hope it never gets this far.
Of course I fully support you guys to stop this possible ban of kiting.
It's more likely an environmental issue than a safety one.
The Swiss gov't banned UL flying years ago, and the ban still stands, probably the only country in the world... Apparently they gave this as a sugar to the Greens to stop them whining on other issues.
The Swiss Greens also tried to get hang-gliding banned, on the grounds the pilots were scaring the alpine animals! So I wouldn't be too surprised if the kite ban was true.
