The detailed, step-by-step instructions in this delightful book make it possible to turn an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper into a finely trimmed glider that will fly further, faster, and straighter than the average paper plane. Beginning with the basic paper dart, Edmond Hui provides instructions for such designs as:

-the cockpit
-the underfold
-the donkey
-the bomber
-the headscarf
-the paperang
-and more.

Once you've mastered the designs in this book, you can go on to create your own using Dr. Hui's clear, illustrated explanations of aerodynamic theory. Paper plane enthusiasts will find tips on flying the planes in competitions, along with a useful glossary. Whether you've never made a paper plane or are looking for ways to improve your designs, Amazing Paper Planes will bring hours of enjoyment.
