A blog detailing our collection of Peter Powell kites, and chronicling our flying of these kites. Plus a bit of PP kite history thrown in. Our collection to date can be seen here. I am keen to expand the collection, so if you have an old Peter Powell kite, whether made in the UK or the US, gathering dust and looking for a new home, why not get in touch? Depending on the kite (does it bring something new or different to my collection?), its condition (is it flyable? how much TLC does it need?), and the price you ask (+ shipping if from outside the UK), we may well be able to do a deal.

Looking for Dragonfli and Firefli

So far, I've been reasonably successful in getting my hands on a range of Peter Powell dual-line deltas: Skyraker, Wing, Skyblazer, Skychaser and Skylite. But I haven't got them all yet, and two that are still missing from my collection are a Dragonfli and a Firefli:


Both had a wing span of just under 2m: 1.85m for the Dragonfli and 1.96m for the Firefli. Never seen one of these two come up for sale, and the internet is pretty much devoid of information on either. Only picture I've been able to find is one of a Firefli:


So ..... if you happen to have either a Dragonfli or Firefli (or, even better, both) gathering dust, ask them if they'd want to become part of a large collection of Peter Powell kites. Flying is guaranteed!
