Both kites and hats are in the air.  Hats are usually attached (to a head) and kites fly (above the head) in the air.  When air (or occasionally, water) is generated, a kite raises and flies.  Low pressure is produced above the wing and underneath the kite’s wing, high pressure is created, which generates a horizontal drag along the wind’s direction.  The kite line’s anchor point could be either mobile or still.  A regular kite is often heavier than air, but the kytoon is usually lighter than air.
