Overview

Budding aeronautical engineers will get their careers off to a flying start with this handsome boxed set. The ten airplane designs they’ll create with it are more than toys; they’re real flying models that demonstrate the scientific principles of flight. As readers follow the simple instructions for building stealth fighters, biplanes, jumbo jets, experimental rocket planes, and supersonic transports, they’ll be introduced to the concepts of lift, drag, and angle of attack; learn how dihedral angles and adjustable control surfaces work; and read about the real airplanes that inspired each design. Includes 40 sheets of 8" x 10" paper (8 sheets each of 5 bold colors), the full-color book Paper Creations: Paper Airplanes, and one completed paper airplane.
