Introduction: How to Make the World's Fastest Paper Airplane

This is how to fold the fastest paper airplane I know. It can take a very hard throw and still fly well. I credit the design to Surefire Paper Airplanes .

*DISCLAIMER*- I AM IN NO WAY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED BY THIS PAPER AIRPLANE- THROW AT YOUR OWN RISK!

WIthout further ado, here is the Instructable! I will reference mountain and valley folds here, so if you don't know what they are, you can check this out first.


Step 1: Precreases

Fold a regular fold hot-dog style along the center, then fold a small reference crease hamburger style. This will be used in the next step.

Step 2: Fold the Corners to Middle

Bring the top right corner down to the middle of the paper where the two creases intersect. Bring the other corner down as well it should end up looking like this

Step 3: Fold Sides to Middle

Bring the sides of the new folds down along the center line- ignore the overhanging of the left flap underneath.

Step 4: Fold Point Behind

Now I need you to fold a mountain fold at the bottommost line and a valley fold at the point underneath where the flaps in step 2 intersect underneath the edges in the previous step. If you are confused look at the pictures.

Step 5: Fold Corners As Far As They Can Go

Take the corners and bring them down so that they can't go any further without tearing the paper.

Step 6: Mountain Fold and Round Corners

Mountain fold the whole plane back and round the edge so that when it flies it gets a little lift when it flies.

Step 7: Final Steps

Fold the sides of the plane back down, aligning the sides of the point back down. Make sure you fold good creases here. After that, your plane is done! Grip the plane near the center towards the front and give it a good hearty toss. And remember try not to break anything!

Hey I made your airplane and IT IS THE BEST I am following. However you could make adjustments with the plane. Instead of the sharp point so you won't hurt people you can fold that down, it won't do anything just so the point wont break. It also flys fast
