A Scott Sled is a type of kite developed in the early 1960s by Frank Scott of Ohio and based on an earlier design by William Allison, also based in Ohio. In 1964 it was featured in Kite Tales, the newsletter of the American Kitefliers Association; as a result it became much more widely known. A large number of derivative designs have appeared since then, the design described here is as it appeared in 1964. Allison patented his kite in 1956; Scott never did. Allison won a civil cease and desist order against the Scott family after it had made and sold millions of kites.

  • A Scott Sled is a type of kite developed in the early 1960s by Frank Scott of Ohio and based on an earlier design by William Allison, also based in Ohio. In 1964 it was featured in Kite Tales, the newsletter of the American Kitefliers Association; as a result it became much more widely known. A large number of derivative designs have appeared since then, the design described here is as it appeared in 1964. Allison patented his kite in 1956; Scott never did. Allison won a civil cease and desist order against the Scott family after it had made and sold millions of kites. The design is known for its ease of construction, sturdiness, light weight, portability, stability, and good performance. It is a sort of scoop-shaped parachute, held open by parallel spars. Most of the shape of the kite is produced by the pressure of the wind. (en)
