Why Fly?

Celebrate flight. Meet some of our friends. Read some of our stories. Get inspired. Go fly.

Bush pilot Pierre flies a Mantis kite on the Copper River, Alaska

Pierre casts his Mantis into the air over the Copper River, Alaska

Like any good story, it started with a crazy idea.

How hard can it be to make a kite? Depends on what you want it to do.

What happens when you bring modern  engineering, aerospace materials, and a pinch of fun to an ancient art?

Sometimes Bossman takes off for a while. We have no idea where he is, except he’s probably in Alaska and out of cell range. Ashley Gross from KPLU caught up with him.

Pack a kite when you escape to the great outdoors. You never know when you’ll find the perfect place to fly.
