5   Link   Australian Kite Association
The AKA is a body of kite flyers seeking to promote the activity of kiting in all its various aspects. After having flown together at a regular time and location for a number of years, the Australian Kite Association formally came into being in 1976.

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 is founded on Hargrave's principles of sharing this interest and knowledge gained for all, and serves as a contact point for information about kite events around Australia and the world.
