About AKA

AKA seeks to provide useful information about kiting in all its various aspects. Kiting involves not only the enjoyment of flying but includes the aspects of design, engineering, aerodynamics, experimentation and innovation as well as the cultural and historic side of kiting.

Lawrence Hargrave, Australia’s first notable kite flyer, employed many of these disciplines to study the possibility of manned flight. Hargrave chose to share his interest and knowledge of kites freely with others of like mind around the world.

The Australian Kite Association was founded on Hargrave’s principles of sharing this interest and knowledge gained for all, and serves as an information resource about kiting.
