Throw it up high and time it as it comes back down! With a gentle breeze this plane can regularly reach flight times of 15-25 seconds! Sweet!

This was my favorite plane design as a kid; as an adult I'm still tempted to go out and play with this one. Maybe I will...

Step 1: The beginning

Start off with a single sheet of standard paper

- fold the top right corner over to the left side of the paper, as pictured
- unfold and do the same operation on the top left corner
- unfold and flip the paper over
<p>mine didn't fly very well. =( It was worth a try.</p>
Have an airplane flying contest at work this afternoon - will let you know how it goes!

Nice, I've actually lost sight of one of them, it went so far and over some trees. Definitely the exception, not the rule.
nice work wonderful
Thank you =)<br/>
15-25 seconds in the air is awesome. How about you break Ken Blackburn`s world record which was 27.6 seconds in the air.
I think that is indoors - outside with wind and thermals paper gliders can stay aloft much longer.
