Abstract:

"A collection of easy-to-fold paper airplane designs and innovative theories of flight, including the author's Guinness World Record-breaking airplane. Features 16 tear-out model planes. The New World Champion Paper Airplane Book chronicles the creation of the new distance champion paper airplane and how it broke the world record. Collins's revolutionary approach to plane design is a departure from all previous record holders and represents the most important development in paper airplane design in decades. This entertaining guide also contains 19 other amazing designs with step-by-step instructional photos, including a novel locking technique, a pioneering cambered-wing plane, and multiple long-flying aircraft that soar for minutes rather than seconds. A 32-page insert of full-color tear-out paper airplane models are printed on regulation-weight, durable paper stock for hours of flying fun"--
