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!

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.

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).

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).

My son absolutely loved this. It has the airplanes that you tear out of the book with the dotted lines on where to fold.
