Instructables
Fast, long range and simple, the HyperVulcan is a development of the Simple Vulcan paper airplane, meant to complement the more complex Turbo Vulcan and Super StratoVulcan paper airplanes.

As with the Simple Vulcan, the HyperVulcan was designed as a response to the warm reception the Super StratoVulcan received. The HyperVulcan's development period was short, as its configuration has almost full commonality with Simple Vulcan. Enough commonality between the original Vulcan and Simple Vulcan existed that I was able to convert a Simple Vulcan (which had been converted from a Vulcan) into the HyperVulcan prototype. Flight testing showed the aircraft to have docile handing and performance similar to that of the Turbo Vulcan. Because the HyperVulcan showed promise as a simpler alternative to that airplane, it was allotted a slot for publication.

Take your paper and fold it along its length. Then pull the corners in and fold them into the center. Then flip the paper over and pull the creases of the corner folds inward.

Step 3: Nose Folding

Pull the corner folds inward as shown. Then pull the tip of the nose downward along the edges of the paper. Once you have made the nose blunt as shown, pull the blunt edge down to the trailing edge on the side with the airfoils. Measure 1 inch inward from the crease on the outer side and make a mark. Then pull the paper back forward, and crease at this 1 inch mark. After this is done, open the nose fold as shown, then make the folds as pictured. Tuck these folds into themselves, then into the nose flap as you fold it back down again.
