How To Fold the Perfect Paper Airplane

Folding the perfect paper airplane is tough. Usually, my paper airplanes won’t go more than five feet before twirling and whirling straight into the ground.

That’s why I recruited the help of the Paper Airplane Guy, John M. Collins to enlighten us all on how to build the perfect paper airplane.

Collins set the world record for Paper Airplane Distance in 2012, throwing a plane more than 200 feet through the air before landing. He’s been at it for years, and there is likely no better source for paper airplane excellence. Check out his video tutorial above.
