Hang in there with us: AKA is redesigning this website. You should see something new and wonderful by the end of 2020. If you have more comments about what the new site should contain, please contact websitefeedback@kite.org.

Welcome to the AKA Membership Portal. 

Here you will be able to access your membership information and members-only content.

Kiting Plus

Often times there is so many great articles for Kiting Magazine that we run out of room! It would be a shame to lose those articles, so instead we publish them here and on the AKA News Blog. If you notice a gap in the numbers, chances are that Volume was a Kite Plan.
