How to Make a Paper Airplane Fast

New Learn the simple steps for high-flying fun with this tutorial on five basic paper airplane patterns.

The Dart

The most basic version. A simple standard that everyone should know how to make.

1. Fold the paper in half vertically.
2. Unfold the paper and fold each of the top corners into the center line.
3. Fold the top edges into the center line.
4. Fold the plane in half toward you.
5. Fold the wings down, matching the top edges up with the bottom edge of the body.
6. Add double stick tape to the inside of the body. The finished plane should look like this.

The Steath

This one is built for distance, plus it just looks cool.
1. Fold the paper in half vertically.
2. Unfold the paper and fold each of the top corners into the center line.
3. Fold the peak toward you and 3/4” from the bottom of the paper.
4. Fold both top corners into the center line.
5. Fold the remaining tip over the two flaps at the center line to lock them in place.
6. Fold the plane in half away from you.
7. Fold the wings down 1” from the bottom of the plane.
8. Fold up the sides of each wing 1/2” tall.
9. Cut two small slits at the back of each wing. Fold up the tabs.
10. Add double stick tape to the inside of the body. The finished plane should look like this.

The Bullnose

This plane is deceptively fast and stays aloft for quite a distance.
1. Fold the top right corner over to the left side, making a fold from the top of the paper to the bottom right corner.
2. Unfold the paper and repeat for the left corner.
3. Unfold the paper again and fold the top right corner over to meet the crease made from the first fold.
4. Fold the left corner over to meet the crease from the second fold.
5. Fold the top right edge over to meet the edge of the fold from step 3. Repeat for the other side.
6. Fold the top edge down and towards you to meet the point where the right and left layers cross.
7. Fold the plane in half away from you. Staring at the nose, fold the wings down at a slight angle, 1/2” in the front to about 2” in the back.
8. Add double stick tape to the inside of the body. The finished plane should look like this.
