Abstract:

The Gliding flight is a return to paper airplane basics: one person, one piece of paper, and a few folds later, one airplane. Using a refreshingly inventive approach to designs and flying characteristics, you can make 20 original paper planes, such as the Stealth, the Wind Devil, the Glart, and the Skid Kid. The book's flip-book animation demonstrates the basic origami folds, with clear step-by-step assembly for each design. A crease here and there is all you need to create high-performance aircraft-no scissors, no glue. In the current age of electronic toys, The Gliding flight proves you can still have fun with a simple sheet of paper and a little imagination.
