Glider Paper Airplanes
Easy to Make Paper Airplanes
These paper airplane glider designs have very large wing areas for maximum lift and long flight times. They are not fast flyers but in light winds they will fly really far and stay in the air a very long time. A light and gentle toss will generally give the best results when you launch your glider.
Pelican Paper Airplane
The pelican paper airplane is a great flying glider with a useful but fragile front canard wing.
Kingfisher Paper Airplane
The Kingfisher Paper Airplane is an elegant floater that has pleasing curves. When folded carefully and tossed gently this design can achieve very long flight times.
Seagull Paper Airplane
The Sea Gull paper airplane is also a unique Delta Wing design and a tucked nose create this elegant looking craft that is a slow long distance floater. This variation on a traditional glider design will float straight and far when folded well.
The Albatross Paper Airplane
The Albatross Paper Airplane is an elegant floater that flies very nicely. You can experiment with the size of the wing tips or even not add them at all for greater wing lift area.
The Chestnut Paper Airplane
The Chestnut paper plane has an extremely large main wing area and and additional canard wing at the front for even more lift. You can adjust the size of the wings relative to the fuselage to either gain more lift with a larger wing or more straight flying stability with a larger center section and smaller wings.
