Synopsis:
Text by Ken Blackburn; Plane Designs by Ken Blackburn and Jeff Lammers. With the proper amount of lift, the thrust of a good throw, very little drag, and stability, stability, stability (check those elevators and fins!), you just might do it: fly a paper airplane into the record books. Ken Blackburn did. Now this aerospace engineer and paper airplane world record-holder since 1983 teams up with Jeff Lammers, a mechanical engineer, to create an everything-you-need resource for beginning and experienced flyers alike. Mixing science, innovation, and their catching enthusiasm, the world record paper airplane book features: sixteen models, with five full-color versions of each, a full-color pull-out landing strip for accuracy practice, and a flight log. Selection of the Aviator's Guild Book Club, Doubleday Book Club, Astronomy Book Club, and Library of Science Book Club. 773,000 copies in print.

Review:
With over a million copies in print, Workman's PAPER AIRPLANE BOOKS have taken off. Developed by Ken Blackburn, the Guinness Book of World Records paper airplane record holder, and Jeff Lammers, a mechanical engineer, the three books in the series are providing hours of fun all around the country. Each book includes a wealth of information, instructions, trivia-and lots of spectacular paper airplanes just waiting to be cut out and given a chance to soar. Also in the series: POCKET FLYERS PAPER AIRPLANE BOOK, with 74 Lilliputian-sized planes for small spaces; and KIDS' PAPER AIRPLANE BOOK, including games, activities, and 76 full-color planes.

Review:
Combining the fun of making a piece of paper fly with the science of aeronautical engineering, here is an all-you-need (and then some) book for beginners and experienced flyers alike. Written with soaring enthusiasm by the world-record holder, it includes:

  • 16 different designs, from the basic dart to a bi-plane, an autogyro, and a replica of the NASA Space Shuttle

  • 100 full-color ready-to-fold airplanes

  • A primer on the principles of flight, including weight vs. lift, drag vs. thrust, and adjustments for greater stability

  • The all-important throw--learn to match throwing technique with the right model

  • Aerobatics: how to perform circles, loops, dives, and other stunts

  • Competitive flying

  • Plus a tear-out Runway and custom Flight Log

    It's everything you need to top 18.80 seconds. If you dare.
