This paper airplane is good if you do not have a big yard or a good big open space any where to fly one. The reason for this is that it does not fly well at all outside at all. It is very good inside though and flies well.

It is called The Seagull, follow these steps to make your own.

Tips for Making This Paper Airplane



Use a lightweight printer paper for this plane. Because it is light and will not weigh the plane down.

Don’t use construction paper or cardstock with this design since it would be too heavy.


Folding Tips:

Make sure you crease the paper well on each fold. And folding on a hard surface will make your creases easier.

Accurate folds will make your plane look and fly better.
