Review

“It’s time to toss those boring white paper airplanes and buy The World Record Paper Airplane Book”—Hemispheres magazine

From the Back Cover

Now completely revised and expanded, with new models, new full-color graphics, and new know-how, this is the irresistible bestseller that marries the fun of making paper airplanes with the hard science of aeronautical engineering. The result? The perfect collection for novice and frequent flier alike. It features:
•A hangar's worth of different designs, from the basic dart to a biplane, autogyro, and the famous World Record Paper Airplane
•112 ready-to-fold airplanes with attention-grabbing full-color graphics
•An improved and expanded primer on the principles of flight, including weight vs. lift, drag vs. thrust, and adjustments for greater stability
• Everything you need to know about the all-important throw—how to match throwing technique with the right model
•Aerobatics: how to perform circles, loops, dives, and other stunts
• How to organize (and win!) paper airplane contests
•Plus a flight log and pull-out runway

Customer Reviews

Bought it for my son (10) who adores paper airplanes and he loved it!
E. L. Winburn
This is a great book the directions take a few minutes to understand but with some play you can make all the planes in there without too much trouble.
Joseph Andrews
This is a good addition to my collection of paper airplane and flying origami books.

This book was the best gift my son received for Christmas--far surpassed any toy, and it entertained him his whole school break. He loves paper airplanes, and the author of this book gives a delightful account of his lifelong love of paper airplanes. He gives three copies of each airplane, so when you rip one or even two, you still have another! They fly, are fun, and are easy to fold. We will be giving this book to others as a gift for years to come!

if you not a pureist (only folding with 1 A4 sheet paper) then this is the perfect book for you. Planes are the craft orientated type.
This means, getting down and tricky, using glue, tape, paperclips etc.
Probably the best choice of book for Kids, as the book comes with pre-coloured sheets at the back to use.
this book will still amase you with what cam be done with paper.
Ken Blackburn himself i have meet and u couldn't find a nicers guy, 'Salt of the earth'. And unlike the current world record holder, he's been quite happy to share his secrets since his WR. (which is inclueded in this book).

I think we own every one of these books, and we love them. My 5-yr-old son can do most of them on his own. We've been buying them for birthday gifts for everyone and they are a big hit.

We gave this book to our grand kids. They got a kick out of it, and it works for a range of ages. The 14-year old immediately started reading the theory then moved on to making the space shuttle. The youngest made the box-wing airplane (with a little help) and was pleased that his flew farther than his older brother's space shuttle.

It is really nice that it has multiple copies of each model printed on tear-out sheets (especially good for us, since it has 4 copies, and we have 4 grand kids in that family).

Oh my gosh I can't believe how wonderful this book is! I bought it for my husband for father's day to play with my 4-year old son. My son is not capable of making the planes yet, but once my husband makes a plane, man do they fly!! I have never made paper airplanes well, but now I'm having so much fun. I just ordered another book for my best friend's son's 5th birthday. The paper is glossy which makes for easy folding. They also include either 5 or 6 pages for each model of plane so if you mess up, you get more chances. I would highly recommend this to any amateur plane maker interested in hours of fun!

This is a wonderful book - and gift - for the persons, young or old, who love, love, LOVE to make paper airplanes! There are many different designs of planes to be made and what makes this book even more unique, is that it has wonderfully decorated paper for each plane design, and has lines to assist the "creator" in folding the plane properly. My son has loved using his book since he received it as a gift, and we have given it as a birthday gift to friends as well. Highly recommended!

My son and his friends have been making paper airplanes for months. The step by step guide is easy for the 9 year olds to follow and the lined paper with graphics is cool. Having multiple copies of each page is helpful so friends can all make the same planes. Now that he has learned the planes and techniques, he can recreate them using regular paper. This is his favorite present of the year and one we will be giving for birthday gifts. Don't just buy 1.

A fantastic joy for children. It is such a treat for them to have real designer paper to make airplanes out of, than just plain white copy paper (for a change.) The best thing though is that the boasted "World Record Paper Airplane" that the book describes actually DOES fly amazing when the children make it for themselves. Hooray! Probably best for ages 7 and up.
