Removed the "safety meeting" entry, which refers to pot smoking. The last thing we need is the FAA thinking HG pilots get high before getting high Sg 07:15, 23 August 2007 (PDT)

I think the FAA is already well aware that some hang glider pilots are/were pot smoking hippies. I have heard safety meeting used in an LZ as recently as this year, by some top notch pilots. I hope we can avoid revisionist history, and political correctness in the wiki.

How about washout and/or twist w.r.t. the wing? I'd add it, but my WiKi skillz are not that l33t.

Tiz, If you can, please edit the Glossary header image text. It would be much better reading - "Hang Gliding; air sport, man made craft under which a pilot hangs . . ." the rest is fine. Wingspan34 * Tiz, I took care of this.

Well there is political correctness, and being just plain old dumb. :) Does having the definition of "safety meeting" really add anything of value to the glossary for new pilots who are the people that will actually be using it??? I may change my mind, but it just seems like risk with no value to me. Sg 09:33, 27 August 2007 (PDT)
