Cannabis

Nowadays the SHGC has to have a zero tolerance attitude to flying in our heavily used airspace whilst under the influence of narcotic substances. Consequently, anyone repeatedly doing so will be reported to the police.

I have received a report that cannabis has again been seen being smoked by certain pilot(s) on our sites prior to flying.

Paragliders and Horses

**PLEASE REMEMBER** DO NOT FLY CLOSE TO HORSES/RIDERS AND
STOP ALL GROUND-HANDLING IF THEY ARE PASSING BY.

A rider was seriously injured after her horse was 'spooked' by a paraglider being ground-handled, near one of our flying sites last week. The lady rider is undergoing skin grafts after receiving injuries consistent with being thrown onto a barbed wire fence.
