Picture of Making a Gliding Paper Airplane

Hello and welcome to my first Instructable. I am going to show you how to fold a paper airplane, that I found glid quite well. Making this paper airplane (and testing it out) takes approximately 10 minutes. Here are the materials you will need:

A4-sized paper (office thickness)

Ruler

Pencil or Pen

Scissor (optional)

You can use the thickness found in office paper, or you can use thicker paper. I found thicker paper makes step 8's 7-centimeter fold invalid, so you will have to experiment there to adjust the center of mass. The measurements given are in centimeters (cm) and inches (in). I apologise that the measurements given in inches are not so round, but I don't have a lot of experience with the imperial measurements.

Step 1: The Slow Glider: Step 1: Fold the paper across

Take your A4 piece of paper, and fold it crosswise (along the line in the pictures). Try to be exact on this step. What you see now is the bottom of the plane, and it will be turned around later. The line drawn here, or the fold, is the "line of symmetry", how I later call it.
