Picture of How To Make The Super StratoSpectre Paper Airplane
Fast, long range and simple, the Super StratoSpectre is a paper airplane designed to be a more able development of the StratoSpectre. By strengthening the spars of the wings, wing strength has been increased and faster flights enabled. The aircraft's quick speed and long range enable the Super StratoSpectre to serve as a backyard buccaneer or a classroom cruiser easily.

The simplicity and sturdiness inherent in this design enable easy construction, modification and operation indoors, such as by students in classrooms. Educators could easily use this versatile paper airplane to demonstrate:
  • Glide ratio
  • Hangtime versus other aircraft
  • Weight and balance
  • Flight dynamics
TAA USAF Designation: A2-15
