A big shift in landing rules has taken place over the past few years.
Currently, there is a spot on the dropzone info page to indicate if hook turns are allowed or not.
I would prefer to see if the dropzone has a separate landing area for high performance landings.
For a lot of people, myself included, this would have a lot of bearing on my decision to visit the place.

Isn't it a USPA group member requirement?

Not every DZ is a USPA group member. Smile
Doesn't mean they should automatic'ly be avoided..

That's fair but not what I meant. Just that the information is defined for group members & therefore is in a known format.

Actually, it's not... and just because it's in the Group Member pledge doesn't mean each DZ is doing it (or doing it equally well). Also, the DZs can implement it in a number of different ways, some of which may be more or less comfortable for the person making a decision.

I like Michelle's suggestion - but I'm not sure how much value it would provide since I assume most if not all DZs will claim that they separate landing areas... but anyone who's been to more than a few DZs knows that some have a culture that enforces it and some ... don't (or enforce it for some and not others).
