Re: So now flying a kite...

Out here where I reside, the major international airport has this problem all the time:

NOTAM (Notice to Airman):

007300000/1010302359

CTN ADZ DUE TO MANY KITES IN VICINITY OF AD. ALL ACFT AFTER TKOF TO

MAINTAIN RWY HEADING UNTIL PASSING

3000FT OR AS INSTRUCTED BY ATC

SFC UP TO 3000

Kites are endemic here, and the authorities won't chase them out of the skies as the narrow streets around the airport are too hard to navigate through (this is Indonesia).

I'd suspect the FAA and airport authorities in the US would hold a dim view to this kind of activity.
