Kites Over New England is dedicated to sharing the joy and enthusiasm our members have for all areas of kiting. KONE is a kite club for kite flyers of all ages. The club has family-friendly events scheduled throughout the year all over New England. KONE is proud to have been chosen as the country’s number one kite club for 2018 by the American Kitefliers Association.


The club and its Web site provide a communications link between kite enthusiasts in our area and around the world. Our club is an affiliate of the American Kitefliers Association and is active in all areas of competitive and recreational kiting. KONE is a not for profit club.  We hold our monthly club fly the first Saturday of each month at various locations throughout New England, and Indoor flies during the winter months.


Some members make and fly kites of their own design, others fly commercial kites. Whatever you fly KONE welcomes you to join us at kiting events throughout New England.

We are sad to mark the passing of one of the earliest and most endearing members of Kites Over New England, and the Nor’Easters Kite Club of Maine. “Hardware” Hank Manseau of Scarborough will be missed by all. His generosity, kindness, smile and laugh, his expertise and willingness to share it, and his devotion to kiting and painting the sky with color and fun will live with us always. Rest easy dear friend.
