                                               All you need is a piece of paper to have fun making
                                               airplanes that really fly! This book is for the whole
                                               family. At very little cost, parents will enjoy making
                                               something with their children and testing the flight
                                               characteristics of different airplanes. Children will
                                               easily be able to make flying objects with well-
                                               defined characteristics. You can play with paper
                                               airplanes indoors or outside: just choose the project
                                               that best suits the place. If your plane does not fly
                                               very well, all you need is another piece of paper to
                                               make another plane in just a few minutes.
