Pilots Flying United: Court Rejects Wind Power Project as Just ‘Plane’ Stupid

  All power generation comes with risk, which get traded off against the enormous societal benefits, when it’s reliable and affordable.

RAF’s Top Guns Call Wind Farms a ‘Disaster in the Making’ for Flyers

**** There are at least 2 critical dangers for flyers created by these things: 1) air turbulence – generated by a sea of 50-60m blades with their outer tips travelling at around 350-400km/h – interfering with the ability of the pilot to control their kite (see our post here); and 2) slamming into them – […]
