I have very fond memories of my "Grampa D" from when I was little. He taught me how to make the World's Best Paper Airplane and today I can share it with you. This paper airplane design has been enjoyed and played with for 3 generations. The front is blunt so it can take a crash and keep going. It is simple, unique, and glides pretty well. (Usually better than in the video) All you need is a regular size sheet of paper, I used printer paper, and scissors.
You have the choice to watch the instructional video, read the step-by-step instructions, and/or view the step-by-step pictures.
Step 1: Make a Square and Cut
- Fold one corner down along the other edge so you have a 90 degree angle
- Then fold the bottom part up and crease it.
- Unfold them all and cut off the rectangle on the bottom along the crease you made so now you have a square and a rectangle.
