Overview


Take off with Super Flyers on a barnstorming tour of flight! A veteran airplane pilot shows you how to make paper gliders, helicopters, parachutes, kites, and a dozen more flying toys. This book shows you a lot of really great flying machines you can make and fly. And it tells you how they (and real flyers such as airplanes and helicopters) get and stay airborne.Fold five different paper airplanes and two whirlybirds from one sheet of paper. Take a strip of cardboard to a drinking straw and create a propeller that rises right out of your hands. Then fly three of the best kites ever, which you can make yourself from plastic bags, paper sacks, and typing paper.Every Super Flyer is explained with step-by-step instructions, diagrams, and tips for stunt flying. All you need to build them are ordinary things around the house and a little imagination. And each one brings exciting facts of flight, from how flying squirrels take off to how Leonardo da Vinci designed the first parachute. Super Flyers makes learning a breeze for budding pilots of all ages.
