Whilst many of the display kites will fly on their own, a pilot kite helps with the launching and results in a more stable reliable flight, giving you more time to admire them and requiring less time for re-launching. Some of the more modern, adventurous designs require a pilot kite in order to be able to fly at all. Pilots come in a wide variety of sizes to suit different kites and different wind. Because kite don't scale, the designs have diverged and over many, many years of development, they have all developed into different configurations as they are optimised and refined. The largest, the 22m2 kite works most reliably when supplemented by a 2m2 pilot itself. See my blog.
