Site FAQ

Do I need to be an AKA member to use this website?

You CAN browse most of our general information without being a member, and we hope that you’ll consider becoming a member once you look around… The benefits are very practical for any kiteflier, and your membership helps to support the services we make available to those who need it, such as event sanctioning and insurance, our beautiful quarterly magazine, committee projects and the annual convention.

How can I learn more about specific kinds of kites?

You can either browse by genre, or try the search box on the right side of this page using regular search terms or specifics like “box kite” using quote marks to get results with exactly that combination of words, and you will also find useful links for more information and discussion on any of the individual genre pages.

Are there two AKA websites?

Yes.  We are in the process of transitioning from our old website to this one, and you may occasionally be redirected to files or resources at the other location – thank you for your patience while we work on this.
