Thanks to the tireless work of our volunteers, we’ve been archiving past issues online in PDF format for the benefit of our members!

Kiting Archive

Older digital versions of Kiting are made available here after the passage of some time. We are in the process of digitizing older more issues to be made available here for your enjoyment and education. Issues that are older than five years are available for the general public. Newer issues are FOR AKA MEMBERS ONLY.  You must be signed in to see issues that are reserved for AKA Members Only.


There’a a lot going on in the world involving kites, and sometimes there just isn’t enough room to get all the photos and text into the printed document that we would like to. Out of this dilemma, Kiting+ was born. Here you will find articles and pictures that did not find their way into the printed copy of Kiting.
