World Wide KAP Weekend.
Those of you who browse the KAP Discussion Group will be aware that most years since 2008, group participants have taken part in a weekend of communial KAP wherever they may be.
The original idea for this event came from Kappix Ramon (Ramon Pallares) as he is known to the group. The late Simon Harbord suggested that a book be made of the photos and yours truely edited the first edition. Most years since there has been an event and a book.
The best thing to do to see if there is a KAP weekend or indeed any meeting is to refer to the KAP Discussion Group.

Basic Kites Rules
The basic height rules for kite flying as outlined in the UK's Rule of the Air are:-
Maximum flying height is 200 feet (60 metres) above ground level.
Within the vicinity of a CAA licensed aerodrome the maximum height is 100 feet (30 metres). The Air Navigation Order defines the vicinty of an aerodrome as being 1.5 nautical miles from the aerodrome's reference point. Regarding the UK's larger airports the rule of thumb for KAP is to try and avoid flying anywhere near. Even if you observe the rules there is the security side of things which may well cause you unwanted attention.
