What makes one paper air plane better than another? Should we judge our planes on ease of construction, length of flight or distance traveled? Personally, I vote for the fun factor. And hopefully, you’ll have plenty while visiting this week’s paper airplane website picks.
Alex’s Paper Airplanes
From Alex’s gallery of two dozen airplane designs, visitors have selected the Dragon Plane and Paper Helicopter as their favorites. The Dragon, an original design, flies “true and fast” and is “the best plane to hit your teacher with.” The Helicopter is popular because it is both simple to make and simple to fly. You can peruse the rest of the planes by difficulty of construction (easy, medium, hard) or jump right to the fastest, longest flying, or most unusual designs.
Best Paper Airplane
During the summer of 1950, eight-year-old Michael O’Reilly watched in amazement as his sister’s boyfriend made the best paper air plane in the whole world. “When he started folding the paper, I knew this was something different, something special. He never explained how he did it but every move, every fold, every detail was burned into my memory.” Today, Michael shares the secrets of the DC-3 paper plane: how to build it and how to fly it.
Joseph Palmer’s Paper Air Plane
Joseph Palmer’s planes are “designed to fly,” not look like real airplanes. As a paper air plane purist, none of his designs require cutting, taping or weights: just a single sheet of 8.5″ by 11′ paper and your fingers. There are only four designs here, but the illustrated instructions are excellent, and judging by visitor feedback, all of them are great flyers.
