Introduction: The Ultimate Paper Airplane

Picture of The Ultimate Paper Airplane

I love paper airplanes. And so, I have decided to show my love with this paper airplane tutorial.

Step 1: Get the Stuff

You will need:
1 sheet of blank white paper
1 field to test your plane on
1 dry, low humidity and medium temperature day (Somewhere around 80 degrees)

Step 2: Fold

Step 3: Fly

You will need to go to your field for this step. Take the plane and throw it upwards but not at 90 degrees or 80 degrees.

You're welcome!
Here are the results of me flying mine:

1st try: Flew straight, and FAR! (About 50 feet!)

2nd try: Curved to the side, and then back around.

3rd try: Zoomed through the air, up and high. (About 55-60 feet!)

Overall, this airplane is totally AWESOME!

I used to fold this paper airplane all the time when I was a kid; but have forgotten how to do it!

Now I can fold one for my son.

Thank you so much for the tutorial!!
