Areas Prohibited for Kite Flying

The Grenada Airports Authority (GAA) advises that the vicinity of the Maurice Bishop International Airport (MBIA), as well as Calliste, Frequente, Fort Jeudy, St Paul’s, Mt Parnassus, and Mt Moritz in Grenada, and the vicinity of Lauriston Airport in Carriacou, are some areas prohibited for the flying of kites.

In a recent statement, the GAA warned that kites can be easily ingested into aircraft engines, or become entangled in aircraft propellers, resulting in engine failure, with catastrophic consequences to aircraft passengers and persons on the ground.

As flying kites pose a serious threat to the safety of aircraft operations at Grenada’s airports, the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) will be working with the GAA to ensure aviation safety in this regard.
