This is how to make the fastest paper airplane 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 of your paper airplane 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.

Starting to look like a real paper airplane now!

Step 6: The Second Folds of the Wings

Flip the airplane 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.


Step 8: Bonus Step

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

<p>soooooooooooooooooooo cool</p>
It looked cool
<p>Guys I think I made <strong>ONE! <em><u>#THEBESTTHINGEVER</u></em></strong></p>

I made this to show you guys<br>
<p>can that thing even fly.</p>
<p>duh. yes. with wind.</p>
<p>I'm a pro at paper airplanes and I made that one along time a</p>
<p>I have a project on paper planes, and we have to make one for speed, distance, and hang time, hope this works!</p>
<p>ive made the one you showed since i was 5 and recently sense getting into high school i got a interest in them a bit more so i learned this one type called &quot;the Hammer&quot; its a bit more complicated but defiantly a thousand times better u should look it up if u are disappointed in this one or just want to get more complicated paper airplanes</p>
<p>My younger grade 3 cousin was entering in a 'Gliding Paper Plane Contest.' I helped him build a fast plane and we built this! AND OOOMMMMGGG he won!!!!!! He won a BUCKET full of jelly beans and gave 2 cups full to me for helping him. ??</p>
