Flyer Pre War
How on earth do you fly a kite, does it take much practice?

I got one today and took it out for an hour but the longest it stayed int the air was for about 15 seconds!...it's a parachute kit about 6ft. in diameter...it was very cheap so do you have to pay for a decent one and has anyone got any tips before my daughter thinks I'm useless!!

OK, firstly, if your kite is a one-line parafoil kite, you may need to adjust the 'bridle' if it's having problems getting into the air. There is information on how to do this here:http://www.xs4all.nl/~pdj/bridling.htm

If your kite is a traditional 'Parachute' design (i.e. shaped the the parachutes in old war movies) then such designs rarely fly very well, usually designed more to create 'pull'.

If your kite is a two line parafoil (either one that looks like a modern parachute or a 'clamshell' NASA wing design) then these few steps should help you to fly it.

1: Pick your spot. Choose where and when you will fly carefully. Going to the beach, a recreation ground or a hillside on a windy day will net good results. Most parks or sports fields in residential areas are less than ideal as the wind is not 'clean' as the surroundings create turbulence. This can make your kite difficult to fly.

2: Measure your lines. As you said you got a cheap kite, I'll guess that it didn't come with good-quality, pre-measured lines. More than likely it came with either two traditional kite winders or two 'hoop' winders. It might be a good idea to pay out the lines and measure and cut them to exactly the same length and always use them fully paid out. If the lines are uneven, it is far easier to loose control of your kite.

3: Launching. With practice you should be able to launch a parafoil without assistance 9 times out of 10. However, to start with get someone to help. They should hold the kite into the wind whilst you stand with your back straight to the wind. Don't run backwards - you should never try to run with a two line kite. You merely need to take a couple of brisk steps backwards until the kite catches the wind and rises up into the sky.

4: Using the wind. Parafoils are designed for power. It is at it's weakest high in the sky, which is also where it's easiest to learn. Let the kite rise until it is 60-80 degrees in the sky from you. It should not pull too hard at this angle and should be far enough from the ground that slight mistakes won't bring it back to earth.

5: Control. Always start by keeping both hands level, some advise you to keep them by your side. Make gentle movements with your left or right hand and the kite will 'steer' accordingly. Once you get used to the speed and turning circle you can experiment more.

6: Power: Up high, the kite will not pull too hard and it's movements should be quite 'lazy'. Once you gain confidence manouver the kite lower. At lower angles the wind exerts more force on the kite and it pulls much harder, also usually making it faster.

As with so many things, it all takes practice. I learned to fly my first stunt kite at around eleven years old (A 'Star Wars' kite) and I crashed that many times, so practice is the real key.

Find your nearest kite specialist and see if they know any clubs or groups nearby, who will usually be very helpful and supportive, even pointing you in the right direction if you want to get a better or more suitable kite.

Also, at this time of the year in the UK there are numerous Kite Festivals, there is a list here:-
www.thekitesociety.org.uk/events.htm
Visiting one of these will allow you to talk to kite flyers and retailers who will be able to help.

It will just take a bit of patience is all. Some people 'get' parafoil kites very quickly (A colleague of mine used mine once and was flying it acceptably in just a few minutes with some coaching, although he was unprepared for the pull on my kite) whilst other's struggle (My wife tried my kite at a recent kite festival and was able to handle it only about 40% of the time). However, as with so many things practice makes perfect.
