Rainy Day Flying?

Recommended Posts

This Monday is my only day off this week and the forecast calls for rain (0.58") throughout the day. I really want to get out there and fly though. Is it ok to fly in these conditions or should I just wait for a better forecast? The wind looks just right on this day, it's just the rain that would be not ideal. It'll be at least a week before I get the chance to go fly again after that day, so I really want to get out there. I recently decided that I want to go fly EVERY chance I get from now on. What do you guys think? What kind of complications, if any, could my kite run into from taking it into these kind of conditions? Thank you in advance for your help!

It may feel heavier and be a little slower in the air. I can tell you after following JWharton for a few months, I think he took the postal oath...

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom will keep me from flying!!

Lightning is the exception to that.

If there is lightning in the forecast, no flying. It can be fatal.

But snow or rain, with proper gear those can be fun.
