National insurance issues

The FCC has warned hang gliding and paragliding pilots not to operate hand-held radio transceivers without a license. Failure to heed this warning could result in criminal penalties ranging from $7,500 to $10,000! For information about obtaining an Amateur Radio license, click here.
- The Seadrift sign has been replaced! Beware of this obstacle at the north end of our LZ, and land south of it. 04/19/16
