The “Midlands Kite Fliers” was formed in 1979 by a group of dedicated enthusiasts and has steadily progressed to become one of the UK’s premier kite groups.
We organise many events throughout the year, including informal “fly-ins” where we not only fly kites, but also get the chance to talk and exchange ideas on building and designing kites and discuss forthcoming events. We try to meet at least once a month, winter included, at one of our many fly-in sites throughout the Midlands.
Our events range from “fly-ins” through larger “kite days” to weekend “festivals” which usually offer onsite camping / caravanning (either free or for a small fee).
MKF Member or not, you’re welcome to come along and join in, giving you the opportunity to meet like minded people and find out what modern kite flying is about. Kite fliers are usually only too pleased to share their knowledge on virtually any aspect of kite building and flying. At major events, Members are more than welcome to take part in flying the club’s large kites as part of our display for the public.
Members receive our quarterly magazine the “MKF News” containing the latest kite related news, views and information. £5M Public Liability cover whenever and wherever you fly kites “for pleasure and in a safe manner” (this excludes buggying, boarding etc.).
