and thousands of others have parts in the history of hang gliding in Los Angeles, California.
Los Angeles' economy and community health have been blessed by aviation and thus by hang gliding.
Recreational hang gliding has supported the vitality of very many aviation-industry workers.
Taxes paid by rich lives touched by aviation and thus by hang gliding has had a substantial meaning over what has occurred in Los Angeles.
Hang gliding today was put positively forward today by Bob Kuczewski at a meeting of Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.
I do not know what he said. And my below comments are not to imply anything about what he said today. He might tell us what he said.
One recreational hang glider's comment:
Hang glider pilots in Los Angeles have shown themselves responsible, respectful, and caring. Equitable treatment in public parks on the level of treatment as surfers, swimmers, bicyclists, walkers, umbrella handlers, walkers, runners, kite flyers, ball players, ... and many more. Forcing the joining of a mean private PG organization by city/county/state governance inertia, depressing an activity inequitably relative to the public recreational trust, effectively privatizing sites that are essentially public recreational trusts only to reduce access for individual recreation, and unnecessarily defining just what is hang gliding by red tape machinations all are not needed. Let the recreational hang glider be left to play with wind and gravity and wing. We have state statutes that already cover our recreation on lands that do not commercialize the relationship.
Whatever you said, BobK,thanks for the trip from San Diego to Los Angeles. I know you have been now for years a regular Los Angeles hang glider pilot; you have purchased huge amounts of goods and services from Los Angeles businesses; and you have aided many citizens of Los Angeles in their recreational hang gliding adventures.
Meeting will be televised tomorrow; I do not know if the view will show BobK.
