I personally know 10 and I imagine that there are many more - perhaps hundreds if you define active to mean flys roughly 4 times per month.

So, I'd say 2000 (to be generous) in a population of 33,311,400 = .006%.

Seems like more 4 line than 2 line action up there these days. Then there's Ray, who flys 6 lines. :-)

9 out of 10,000 North Americans. . .

(I stole that gag from an old ad for Cynar, an aperitif that I -- and 9 out of 10,000 North Americans -- used to drink.)

I've accurately been reporting on the number of kiters for many years.

There are six kiters in Canada.

I think you meant to say 6 squared kiters didn't you John........That would mean it's real close to the magical number of 42 ;)

No, didn't mean 6 squared. I meant 6 because that's how many there is.  I've been an authority on this for at least a decade.  ;D

My guess will be 200 active fliers or even less in the whole country.  :'(
