Non Bell pilots

A few years ago there was some discussion about the term "rocketbelt pilot". Under what conditions you can name yourself a rocketbelt pilot. When you fly it under tether: yes. When you fly it free: yes.

Bell had some points. They considered a rocketbelt pilot a rocketbelt pilot when he could lift off, translate 100 feet, make a 180 turn and land safely, all in one flight.

So I made a split here, the free flyers, and the tethered flyers. Not to make two camps or to devide free from tether, but like the heritage of the old Bell procedures. But, who knows, in the future and when this site is more "filled up" I could change that.
