The origin of folded paper gliders is generally considered to be of Ancient China, although there is equal evidence that the refinement and development of folded gliders took place in equal measure in Japan.

There are dozens of different designs to try an make.  Paper planes can made into the classic dart or glider designs. More elaborate designs can show you how to create a paper stunt plane or World War II plane.

Make them for fun with your friends or test your skill in a paper airplane competition.
