Hello. Today I will be teaching you how to make the best ever paper glider. Instead of taking advantage of momentum, it slowly glides downwards. This is a very easy-to-read instructables, and the pictures are pretty much self explanatory.

Step 1: Materials and First Steps

Here is where the action begins.
You will need:
1 Sheet of normal 8.5 by 11 paper
1 Ruler
1 Pair of scissors
Anything to decorate your plane.

Step 1: Fold your sheet of paper in half lengthwise and then unfold it. (In 3rd grade we called this a hot dog fold).
I invented a glider paper airplane better than that, but it will come out at December 2010.
Wait so are both the lines that are vertical both 3 cms?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
 Why cut out the squares?
I'm really not sure, it just works better. Feel free to experiment, though.<br />
hmmmmmm... i think you should change that a bit
it was ok
I made a modification to mine because it kept crashing to the ground, so i bent the flaps up in the back a little by ripping the the creases about a centimeter in and it flew longer and farther.
