Skyport Reminds Of Responsible Kite Flying

March 29, 2018

Skyport is reminding the public of restrictions for kite flying surrounding the LF Wade International Airport over the Easter holiday.

A spokesperson said, “Kites should not be flown in the Ferry Reach area, Kindley Field Road, and the Clearwater area of St David’s. If kites are flown in these areas, they could end up in the path of aircrafts as they arrive and depart the island.”
