Wilderness Survival Signals
Posted On: 2019-03-12

Ground to air signals should be at least 10 metres long and 3 metres wide with 3 metres inbetween each signals. These signals can be made of anything, like branches, dark coloured soil or even burned trees. Just remember that they have to be big enough so that aircraft can see them. All search and rescue workers know these signals as they are recognized worldwide.
