From the Author

Fantastic Flight was a joy to write.  After the success of my first book, The Gliding Flight (first published in 1989), it took a decade for me to put together a worthy sequel.  I wanted to really push the limits of what could be done with folded flight.  Planes from this book have become standard fare at the finals of the Red Bull Paper Wings World Championships aerobatics category. 

Now, as the world record holder, I see this book as an integral part of that learning process, which lead to the success of the breakthrough design.  The New World Champion Paper Airplane Book (March 2013) chronicles the record breaker, and Fantastic Flight provides a great collection of world class planes.   Your world record journey should travel through this book.

This second book by Mr Collins do not have as many unique planes as his first offering...but the explanations and the theory of how these planes fly is unbeatable. He even gives you breakdowns on the flight to landing ratio, how to stage your own flying contests ...etc...that alone is worth the price of the book. The diagrams and instructions on the folding of the paper planes are a plus.

To sufficiently enjoy and evaluate this book, one has to be ready to take the time to study the art of paper folding. Then above that, one has to be thoroughly intrigued by the phenomena of flight. Combine these two, and you get the full measure of appreciation of what John Collins has done with this and his other books on the subject of flying paper airplanes. Mr. Collins has already presented his credentials with regard to being a caring teacher, because in his approach and presentation of each progressive project, he imbues in the student the same kind of spirit and joy that he has enjoyed in reaching the status of expert. He also does not lose sight of how to reach out and touch the creative impulse in humans, because the excitement that he experiences with each discovery comes through each and every page all the way to the conclusive and advanced projects. Putting this book down and ignoring it is impossible; he proves over and over again that science, art, and joy need not be expensive or too difficult to obtain for anyone willing to take the time to explore the important things in life.

this is not a starter book but is great for those already interested in paper aviation. suggest you pair this with Airigami by Elmer A. Norvell.

John Collins is a passionate ambassador of paper planes and this book is the most creative in complex and spectacular shapes. Not easy but phenomenal.
