The Best Way to Fly Paper Airplanes
If your origami aircraft tend to nose-dive, try these tips from aeronautical engineer Ken Blackburn, the world-record holder
for keeping a single-sheet paper airplane in flight indoors (27.6 seconds).
- Use copier paper. Paper should be strong enough to hold a shape and light enough to stay aloft. Avoid newsprint (too flimsy) and poster board
- Choose a sound design. The ones you mastered as a kid still work, or check out Blackburn’s ideas at paperplane.org.
- Tweak the wings. “Take the back edge of the wings and bend them up between your fingertips a little bit,” says Blackburn. “This will hold
up the nose.”
- Throw evenly. Give the plane an easy and level throw and it will fly straight.
