Release, Waiver and Agreement Regarding Use of Metropolitan Water District Property
In consideration of my being allowed to make emergency landings on property of the Metropolitan Water District of Salt Lake and Sandy (“District”)
and being allowed access to the property to retrieve my equipment, I, on behalf of myself, my heirs and assigns irrevocably release and waiver all
claims, causes of action and other rights against the District and its contractors arising from any loss, injury, death or harm while participating in
hang gliding, paragliding or associated activities, whether or not the loss, injury, death or harm resulted in whole or part from any negligence of the
District or its contractors. I further agree that the District and its contractors have no duty to warn me of any hazard or risk on District property,
including construction equipment or activities in or near any landing areas or access roads. Information provided by the District regarding landing
areas and road conditions reflects general conditions only. It is my responsibility to visually inspect the landing area and to assess actual conditions
before launching. I voluntarily assume all risks, known and unknown associated with my use of the District’s property, even if caused in whole or in
part by the action, inaction, or negligence of the District or its contractors.
I agree to abide by any rules and regulations of the District regarding my use of its property. I further recognize that temporary closures of the
property may become necessary due to construction activities and I agree to abide by such closures.
I recognize that the District reserves the right to revoke or suspend permission for my use of its property at any time and for any reason.
I agree that if I make a claim against the District or its contractors in violation of this agreement, I will be liable for costs and attorneys fees incurred
in defending the claim.
I certify that I am at least 18 years of age and that I am a USHPA rated hang glider or paraglider pilot, or a student pilot un der the supervision of a
USHPA certified instructor.
I acknowledge that I have read this agreement, fully understand the potential dangers of engaging in hang gliding and/or paragliding, am fully aware
of the legal consequences of signing this agreement, and that I understand and agree that this document is legally binding and will preclude me from
recovery to monetary damages from the above listed entities and/or individuals, whether specifically named or not, for personal injury, bodily injury,
property damage, wrongful death, or any other personal or financial injury sustained by me in connection with hang gliding and/or paragliding.

Utah Hang Gliding and ParaGliding Association Rules Rev. 01/03/2013
SOUTH SIDE Rules
1. Must be current USHPA and UHGPGA member. Pilots are to display a current UHGPGA
sticker on the right side of their helmet. Flying while not a member places the site in jeopardy,
a violation of USHPA SOP 12-7, which is punishable by temporary or permanent revocation
of ratings.
2. Must have a current H-2/P-2 or higher USHPA rating. Students & H-1/P-1’s must be
under the supervision of an UHGPGA/POMIC approved instructor.
3. The “Ridge Rules” establish right-of-way and are to be followed at all times (see below
for complete rules).
4. The hang glider launch/landing area is the area from the west of the gash (in front of the
parking lot) to the center red/green flag. This area is to be kept clear whenever hang gliders
are set up or flying. Absolutely no kiting in this area when hang gliders are present.
5. The center flag serves as an informal indicator of conditions. Any POMIC approved
instructor, UHGPGA club officer, USHPA instructor, observer, or examiner has the right to
change the flag color on the main flag (in the launch area). Green means “general flying”
and as such pattern rules MUST BE FOLLOWED! Fly the Pattern and land your glider in
the proper zone (hang gliders on the East side of the center flag, Paragliders on the West).
Red flag signifies no student flying and H3/P3 or above strongly recommended. Pilots
remaining in the air must still follow ridge rules, but the window is open for discretion flying
(acro, sliders, kiting on the edge, etc. CAUTION: NEWER AND LESS EXPERIENCED
PILOTS SHOULD PROBABLY NOT BE FLYING WHEN THE RED FLAG IS UP.
6. When the green flag is out, advanced pilots can engage in discretion flying while adhering
to ridge soaring and right of way rules. This must occur outside the “pattern flags.” So,
advanced pilots play to the east or west of the border flags, outside of the general flying
pattern.
7. Launch Box: Imagine a box running the length of the South Side ridge 15 feet from the
edge of the hill (see the diagram below). This is the launch box. The launch box is just that,
once you are at the edge you are going to launch when the green flag is out. NO KITING,
NO SLIDERS in this area. If you are at the lip, launch! If you see someone in the box, be
aware, they are trying to launch. If you want to kite on the lip or play around, go outside of
the Pattern Marker flags.
8. Before launching, make sure you are clear of traffic and yell “Clear” or “Launching”

9. Landing areas are to be kept clear AT ALL TIMES. As soon as you land pick up your
wing and clear the landing area. As you clear the LZ, stay alert to incoming landings.
Absolutely no kiting in designated landing areas. Kiting is allowed on the upper gravel
plateau. Vehicles are not permitted in landing areas AT ANY TIME, no matter how brief.
10. Paraglider only – USHPA recommends max. wind speed of 18 mph for P-2, and 22 mph
for P-3.
11. Helmets must be worn whenever you are attached to a glider.
12. No take offs or landings with motors on club or park property. The South Side Flight
Park reaches from the paved road up to the westernmost flag out at the slide. Motor pilots
please stay clear of the flight park when under power.
13. All Utah State Parks rules and regulations apply and must be followed.

NORTH SIDE RULES
1. Must be current USHPA and UHGPGA member. Pilots are to display a current UHGPGA
sticker on the right side of their helmet. Flying while not a member places the site in jeopardy,
a violation of USHPA SOP 12-7, which is punishable by temporary or permanent revocation
of ratings.
2. Must have a current H-2/P-2 or higher USHPA rating. Students & H-1/P-1 pilots must be
under the supervision of an UHGPGA/POMIC approved instructor.
3. The “Ridge Rules” establish right-of-way and are to be followed at all times (see below
for complete rules).
4. Before launching, make sure you are clear of traffic and yell “Clear” or “Launching”.
5. Aerobatics/maneuvers are strongly discouraged at the Point, and are STRICTLY
prohibited above or in proximity of houses, or within 300 ft of the grass.
6. On the North Side, paragliders can land on the grass, but must yield to people on the
ground. If the grass area is too populated to land safely, use the hang glider landing area.
The hang glider landing area is to the West of the flight park (past the grass). If you land in
the hang glider landing area, check for traffic then quickly clear the area. Kiting is strictly
prohibited in, and upwind of, the hang glider landing area. See attached photo for
clarification.
7. Paraglider only USHPA recommended max. wind speed is 18 mph P-2 and 22 mph P-3.
8. There will be NO USE OF MOTORS at or around the North Side Flight Park.
9. Helmets must be worn whenever you are attached to a glider.
10. The dirt road past the bathrooms is only to be used by instructors driving to the upper
launches. Only the road closest to the “back bench” is to be used. Instructors must make
sure the landing pattern is clear before proceeding past the bathrooms. There is absolutely
no stopping or parking on the dirt road, particularly not in the first 100 yards beyond the
flight park. The gate to the upper launch MUST be locked each time you pass through it to
ensure continued access to the upper launches.
11. All Salt Lake County Parks and Recreation rules and regulations apply and must be
followed.

Rules of the Ridge
When traveling opposing directions, pass to the right (just like driving a car). Pilot on
the “inside” with the ridge to their right has right-of-way.
Lower pilot has right of way.
First pilot in a thermal sets the turn direction. When entering a thermal with other
pilots already in it, you must yield to them (don’t push them out of the thermal). If
multiple pilots are in the same thermal, the lowest pilot sets turn direction (and higher
pilots must match).
Always, Always, ALWAYS clear your turns. See, be seen, and avoid.
If you are overtaking someone going the same direction as you, pass between the pilot
and the ridge (as long as it is safe to do so).
Do not pin other pilots against the ridge. If a pilot is between you and the ridge, make
sure they have enough room to turn out away from the ridge if they need to.
