Intro: The Worlds Best Paper Airplane. the World Length Record Is 102 Feet!

This plane is ultimately my favorite paper airplane. It's cool, fast, and far flying.Try throwing it off a jungle gym at your nearest park. Just bear in mind that you might not see it again. Also this plane is perfect to fit in any pocket comfortably!

Keep on reading to learn how to make the world's best paper airplane!

Step 1: Collect Your Paper

on this plane you can use any paper that is 8 1/2 x 11 inches, i like that thin decorative paper its cool and pretty. but your ordinary printer paper will work fine. all you need is a piece of paper, No tape, No scissors, No paper clips, just paper!

Step 2: Start Folding!

you are going to need to do the most precise folds for the best plane. first off you are going to fold the paper into a triangle and do the same on the other side.

Step 3: Folding

okay now you need to fold the sides in just like the pictures

Step 4: Folding

Now fold the whole plane in half.

Step 5: Folding

no unfold it and fold the top down so the crease down the center is perfectly overlapping the other.
after fold the two sides so the corners are touching each other, then unfold them.

Step 6: Folding

fold the bottom part up so it is folding right along the creases on the sides.

Step 7: Folding

now fold those pesky sides in so they are perfectly along the side of the plane.

Step 8: Folding

now fold those parts you just folded, fold them in again. ~_~ (i know confusing)

Step 9: Folding!

Fold the top popping out of your odd creation.

Step 10: Folding

now fold it neatly in half.

Step 11: Wings

Now fold the wings on the line across the bottom of the plane.

Step 12: How to Fly

Now hold it near the center and fold the wings a bit up and throw it with medium power, upward a bit, and watch it fly away in the horizon.

It's notebook paper. It's also called loose leaf paper, or lined paper. Most people call it notebook paper, though.
