Overview

Easy to make, cleverly designed, and fun to fly, these innovative paper planes come from origami masters around the world. More than 30 projects, accompanied by ample colorful drawings that direct every fold, include simple planes for newcomers, as well as advanced and unusual “high tech” patterns for ambitious “pilots.” A good place to start is with the beautiful, uncomplicated Dove, which soars superbly. The Hanging Hawk has a fantastic-looking wing structure that’s worth the extra effort. Or create a Stunt Plane; the Needle Floater with a long, thin nose; or the Thunder Bomber. A basics section covers papers, folding symbols and techniques, the principles of flight, and cool customizing ideas. Launching tips throughout ensure a smooth flight.
