Fun informative book!

I added this to my cart on a lark. So glad I did. Good practical info on basic aerodynamics plus LOTS of very cool colorful paper airplane templates to fold and fly. Good instructions. This is just FUN.

Great paper plane book for everyone!

I still have my copy of this book I got back in 96 or 97 when I was young and now my nephew is 5 so hes starting to enjoy these sorts of hobbys. I Highly reccomend this book to anyone who wants to learn some of the basics of flight and how to properly build and launch paper airplanes (yes there is technique involved). When I got this book it was packed with very cool designs for the planes that you just tear out of the book. Each plane comes with a number system printed on the planes as well as very detailed folding instructions. Each pattern comes with about 4 or 5 copies of each airplane. Some are better than others and some I could never get to work right (I was kinda young). If you want a really fun book pick this one up asap, you won't regret it! If you do buy this book be sure to color copy each of the designs to save on your pc as backups. Im 22 now and im kicking myself for not doing just that for my now 5 year old nephew.

Still picking up the paper

I am still finding paper airplanes in various places throughout my house 3 months after giving this to my son.


Few of us have not taken a piece of paper, creased a few strategic folds, and then lofted our paper plane into the air. For those of us who still enjoy the fun, mischief, and creativity involved in such a pastime, here's the perfect book. Aerospace engineer Ken Blackburn and mechanical engineer Jeff Lammers have mixed science and innovation to give us everything needed. Containing 100 full-color, ready-to-fold paper airplanes ranging from the simple to state-of-the-art streamlined, this colorful volume enables us to form the Basic Dart, do loops with the Stunt Plane, and even propel a replica of the NASA space shuttle. In addition to the planes, the well executed text offers a plethora of information about aviation and flying. There's even a section on how to stage contests, and a flight log is included. Up, up and away! - Gail Cooke

Beautiful Book!

A terrific book - excellent for kids and adults. The explanations are clear and the planes are beautiful. It's everything you need to build and fly great planes.

The best book I've ever read about paper airplanes.

After I had red your book, I have to fold all of the airplanes for my son David. That was a hard work, because I had to fold some of them more than once. But David loved them. It is unbelievable that the Vortex will be able to fly. Very good !!!
