Sled Kites

When this style of simple, flexible kite made its maiden flight in the early 1950s, its inventor, William Allison, noted what a great “flexible flier” it was. Since that also happened to be the name of a popular snow sled, he dubbed his kite a “sled kite.” A sled kite flies so well that it is a good project for kite workshops. It can be constructed of paper, fabric or plastic and in various sizes and configurations.
