aeroplanes, are great
fun to make. This
website provides free,
step-by-step instructions for how to make some of the best paper
designs. All the designs come with easy to follow video or photographic
and some come with video demonstrations of test flights.
Currently nine different paper aeroplanes are uploaded on
site; however, I'll be updating with more,
so remember to check back.
In the meantime, why not build one of the planes listed below,
or, if you want a bit a thrill, check out my
advanced aerodynamics and folding
blog or the paper
aeroplanes - world records page
A paper aeroplane should be made from just one piece of A4* paper.
Paper aeroplane designs should not incorporate any additional material.
No tape, no glue, no staples, no paper clips.
2) The paper
sacred, it should not be cut or torn. If
I want to achieve a certain wing or fuselage shape, or shift the centre
of gravity in a certain way, I can't cut my way there, I have to fold
my way there.
designs should be capable of approximately straight, level flight –
provided they are calibrated correctly. I've never had much interest in
producing paper aeroplanes that look beautiful, but can't actually fly.
How to make a paper aeroplane: my
different rules on how to make paper aeroplanes. Some people
have no rules at all.
there is no objective reason why any set of rules is better than any
others; however, these are the rules that I grew up with, and are
inherent in all of my designs. Sticking to these rules requires one to
understand both aerodynamics and origami, making the design process
is a standard paper size in the UK and Australia (the two countries
where the bulk of my visitors come from) and for most of the
world. However, I realise that in America a slightly different standard
size is used. The designs on this site are optimised for A4 sized
paper; however, using standard US letter sized paper works almost
as well in
