    Do Reversing Turns Away from the Ridge

    Because of the tail wind and resultant high ground speed toward the cliff, doing a reversing turn downwind toward a cliff is a bad idea. Not only does it require more distance from the cliff or hill, but it is against standard protocol. Doing so can confuse other pilots. If one starts a turn this way without enough distance from the cliff, there is no exit and a crash may ensue.
