Paper Airplane Guinness Record | Takuo Toda



Takuo Toda, president of the Japan Origami Aeroplane Association, set a new record for longest paper plane flight at a competition in Hiroshima Prefecture in April 2009.
Toda has set a new record for the longest flight with a paper-only plane. Using a specially designed 10cm long paper plane named "The Sky King".
While just short of the world record 27.9 seconds, it was a new record for a paper-only plane -- the world record (also held by Toda) was set by one with tape on it. Toda - head of the Japan Origami Airplane Association - said he was pleased with the record but hopes to achieve a 30 second flight soon.
Check out his world record breaking flight after the link and find out how to make a Sky King paper plane -- we guess the reasons to click are twofold.




How to flod the Sky King
Like the paper airplane you made as a kid, the Sky King is made of a single sheet of paper, which can be a your basic oblong notebook sheet or copy sheet (8.5 x 11).    You won't need any tape or glue either.
