9781580085779: Fantastic Flight

The Guinness World Record holder says, "Let's Do Launch!"  These aren't your ordinary paper airplanes. These airplanes loop, circle back, flap their wings and spin, tumble, soar, and, of course, glide. In his best-selling book, THE GLIDING FLIGHT, award-winning paper airplane designer John Michael Collins introduced us to the craft of paper airplane folding. In FANTASTIC FLIGHT, the much-anticipated sequel, Collins reveals the next generation of fold-and-fly fun. He explains how to craft 24 new and amazing flying machines--like the Looper, the Bat plane, the Super Canard, and the Manta Ray--using just single sheets of paper. Featuring a wide range of paper airplanes, from simple designs suitable for young children to more complex planes that, believe it or not, will stay aloft indefinitely, FANTASTIC FLIGHT presents clear, step-by-step folding instructions for an activity the whole family can enjoy. As an extra bonus for teachers, Collins includes a special section on planning educational paper airplane contests complete with lesson ideas. FANTASTIC FLIGHT reveals how to combine aerodynamics, origami, and a single sheet of paper to create phenomenal flying fun.THE GLIDING FLIGHT has sold more than 40,000 copies.

* THE GLIDING FLIGHT has sold more than 40,000 copies.

From the Author:

Fantastic Flight was a joy to write.  After the success of my first book, The Gliding Flight (first published in 1989), it took a decade for me to put together a worthy sequel.  I wanted to really push the limits of what could be done with folded flight.  Planes from this book have become standard fare at the finals of the Red Bull Paper Wings World Championships aerobatics category. 

Now, as the world record holder, I see this book as an integral part of that learning process, which lead to the success of the breakthrough design.  The New World Champion Paper Airplane Book (March 2013) chronicles the record breaker, and Fantastic Flight provides a great collection of world class planes.   Your world record journey should travel through this book.
