how to make paper airplanes that go far

Report as

Take a piece of paper (average printer paper size). Fold the paper in half. Fold one edge toward the center, and do the same thing with the other edge. Then you will fold the new paper form toward the original center, and repeat the process again, and then once more. This can be challenging to explain in writing, and following instructions in a diagram depicting the process is highly recommended. Once you have created an airplane, if you want it to fly far, you need to consider what is called drag (or resistance) and gravity. Make sure your plane is as light as possible. The lighter it is the farther is will fly. Lift and thrust will also help the plane to fly far. This has to do with your aim.

To make paper airplanes travel further you need to use lightweight paper. Also, by making the wings longer it will also travel further.
