How to make a paper airplane that will fly far
Add a paper clip to your plane to help it fly farther. (R.Shatto)

Folding paper aeroplanes is an entertaining hobby. There are several different styles of paper aeroplanes that you can fold. Some styles will fly faster or have a loopy flight pattern, while others fold in a way that will make them get a lot of distance out of a single flight. Making a paper aeroplane that will fly far is useful for throwing in a competition or out a high-story window.
