good flying fields in Austin?

Post by Jackie Hamilt » Wed, 22 Apr 1998 04:00:00


Can anyone suggest any good kiting fields in Austin other than Zilker
Park?  I dunno if it's just me or what, but every time I've tried flying
at Zilker, the winds have been pretty crummy, always shifting and varying
speed.  Rotten for flying, IMHO.  Plus its too crowded there on weekends
to even bother.

Any alternate suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks,

Hi Jackie,

Some people seem to go to Old Settlers Park east of Round Rock.  Lanier
High School also is pretty good.  Or you could come fly with us some
Sunday morning at the J.J. Pickle Research Campus.  Just get me advanced
notice you are coming so I can get you clearance. I'm sure others will
also have suggestions or contact the local kite shop "World Wind Kites"
250-9454.

Jackie,


Eddie is also a kiteflier and can tell you where most of the other
austin fliers fly their kites at.

Some fliers go to Old Settlers Park in Round Rock
to fly. I've been there and it is a very good field for flying.
