Kite Flying Illustration


The best places to fly kites are –
  • A flat field
  • The windward side of a hill
  • Near the sea or a lake


NEVER fly kites –
  • Near overhead power cables
  • In a thunderstorm
  • Near a road or railway
  • Near an airport


Don’t try launching a kite by running with it – this is very inefficient. The easiest way to launch a kite is by '‘winching’' – i.e. the kite is launched by repeatedly reeling in and then giving slack. If the kite seems unstable and always rotates one way because of a manufacturing inaccuracy, try adding a tail or drogue to one side only to compensate.
