How To Make A Paper Airplane Easily
The Best Paper Airplane (in my opinion)
Paper Airplanes Made Easy!
Just about everyone has tried to make a paper airplane at some point in their life. There is just something so satisfying about taking a sheet of paper and turning it into a very entertaining toy. If you are interested in creating a simple paper airplane that will only take a minute to make and fly straight and true, then you have come to the right place! I have included step-by-step instructions, some books I recommend to make other paper airplanes, and some other websites that may be helpful if you are searching for a certain type of paper airplane.
How To Make The Best Paper Airplane!
Find a sheet of computer printing paper (8"x11.5") or school notebook paper. Lay the paper on a table with one of the long sides facing you. Fold the paper in half lengthwise (like a hotdog!). When the fold is symmetrically lined up, make a crease. The piece of paper should be exactly half the width it was.

Hold the paper in one hand along the first crease you made. Let the wings of the plane flare out. Hold the airplane near the tab and toss the plane forward with an overhand motion. The key is to make sure the plane is straight when you let it fly and not to hold on to it too long. You can also add a paperclip to the bottom of the paper airplane (where you made the first crease), to keep it from flaring out when you let it go. You can also fold in the tip of the paper airplane so that it is more blunt and less likely to hurt someone.
For a straighter flight, try a heavier duty paper. Oh, and above all else, EXPERIMENT! Add a little paper dude in the cockpit. Fold the tips of the wings down and test it to see if you get a better flight. The best part about making a paper airplane is making it your own! For more types of paper airplanes, I've included a link to the Klutz Book of Paper Airplanes below.
