Site FAQ

I added my kite flying field, why don’t I see it in the database yet?

Most likely, it’s still being reviewed and you’ll receive an email when approved by an admin.

A location is exact in the system, why do the directions point elsewhere?

The directions generated by Google are based on transportation, so they will point to the nearest drivable point.

How can I submit more information for a site already in the system?

We have a site correction form you can use, information will be reviewed by admin for addition.

Is there any limit to the number of flying sites I can add?

No, there is no limit – add as many as you like!

Is limited to specific types of kite fliers?

No, this is a kiting community resource and open to all… We welcome submissions from dual, quad or single line fliers of all kinds, and ask only that you take the time to include sufficient details in your site submissions to make it as easy as possible for other fliers to understand if the site will work for the kites they’re flying.

Is there any charge to search or add to the database?

No, this site is a 100% free service to the general public.

How can this be free, surely there is a cost to keep it running?

Who founded the site, or came up with the idea of

The idea was put forth by Andy Scott and Bob Curtis (2/19/11) to John Barresi, who had also been considering the concept for some time… While it was a team effort (UK/US), the core of this site (Google API) was handled by Andy, with web design work done by KiteLife and significant time contributions from a core group of beta testers on the Revolution forum.
