MAKING PAPER AIRPLANES THAT HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO FLY MORE THAN 100 FT:
Kids love making paper airplanes and playing with them. But unfortunately these paper airplanes cannot fly too high and do not have the potential to cross much potential either. However this article will help kids to enjoy making paper airplanes that will easily go higher than a hundred feet in the air. And the main trick behind this is a paper that is sturdy enough to enable the airplane to go a long way. Structural integrity is the main thing that supports an aircraft to fight against the wind and travel longer and higher distances. The same must apply to your paper aircraft. You have to come up with an aircraft design that will give your airplane small wings so that they can give your paper airplane more speed. Finally the angle at which you throw your paper airplane will determine the height that your aircraft will take.
Keep in mind that making this poker airplane is not easy but with practice you will soon master it. Take a paper that is 8 ½ by 11 inches in size and is of good quality too. Position it on a flat surface so as to keep its short side horizontally and its long side vertically in front of you. Then take a top corner of one side of the paper and fold it all the way down to its opposite bottom corner. This will cause your paper top to get aligned with the papers opposite side. Then unfold this position and repeat with the other top corner and unfold it again. This will leave a prominent X mark on your sheet of paper.
Now you have to take any top corner of your paper and line it up with the X mark by folding it. This time leave it folded. Then take the other corner and repeat the same. Now you have to vertically fold your paper in half and unfold it again. Then fold your paper horizontally by folding the top edge of your paper so that it meets the bottom edge of your paper. Then take the newly formed upper corner and fold it down to the papers center crease, repeating with the other corner too. Once finished with both corners, unfold the paper.
Now focus on all the creases that have been formed on your paper. Locate the ones that reach the bottom. Using your finger, trace one of these creases until you get to the point where a flap of your paper has been folded on top. Here you have to fold your flap up again.
Now taking both outside edges that you notice, bring them in so that they fold on the nearest diagonally formed crease that you see. Then repeat this process again with both outside edges. Now you will be left with a top point which you also have to fold in. Then finally turn the paper around and fold it vertically in half. Then folding the wings by aligning them with your centre fold you will have a great paper airplane.
