We’re a national adventure and retail operation – locations from Maine to Florida but mostly based on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. If it’s fun to do on the Outer Banks, we do it. Kitty Hawk Kites is the world’s largest and oldest Hang Gliding School and now features a Kite Boarding School and Resort, Kayaking tours and much more!

We encourage our crew to participate in community events, fly kites and enjoy the various recreation opportunities we offer.  Many of which, our employees can experience for free.

We aspire to inspire moments of pure joy and memories worth sharing and repeating.  Our purpose, Teaching the World to Fly, is literal and figurative.  How will you teach the world to fly?
