Picture of How to Make the Fastest Paper Airplane

This paper airplane is the fastest I've ever seen. I call it the Eagle.

Step 1: Fold In Half

This is an easy step. Just fold an 8.5 x 11" sheet of paper in half down the center like pictured. And then open it up again so that it lays flat.

Step 2: Fold the Cockpit

Fold the cockpit so that the flap corners meet at the center line.

Step 3: Fold the Cockpit Down

Fold the cockpit down so that the point lines up with the center fold line.

Step 4: Fold the 2nd Cockpit

Fold your second cockpit by folding your tow flaps down like the 2nd step.

Step 5: Make the First Folds of the Wings

Fold another two flaps down to the center of the plane.

Step 6: The Second Folds of the Wings

Flip the plane over and fold each side in to line up with the center fold of the plane.

Step 7: Ready For Takeoff!

Flip the plane over one last time and open up the folds so that you have the 'body' of the plane to hold on to (like pictured).

You are now ready for a test flight.

To fly well, fly inside and throw as hard as you can.

DISCLAIMER: DO NOT THROW AT AN ANIMAL OR HUMAN BEING.

Step 8: Bonus Step

If you want your plane to go even further, put a paperclip on the forward body of the plane. The weight will help it fly farther.

Made this paper plane for my daughter just now . I used to make them as a kid but its been a long time so I needed a refresher. I agree step six is a little confusing. Not sure which way to fold in half and the photo is a tiny bit blurry.. I think I did it right, it seems to fly.

Is this harder than I made it? I did all the steps and found it really easy, but why is everyone saying its so hard? flies really well
it was hard to fold on the last part..... but it was well worth it with flying fast! and it was easy to make
