This two day course is designed to get students fluent in folding techniques, standard diagram reading, and basic aerodynamic principles. Lots of paper airplane making and flying will dominate the two days. Basic folding techniques will be learned organically, as part of the process of paper airplane making. Learning how to throw and adjust your paper airplanes for maximum performance will be a big part of this class. Students will learn the three fuselage locking technique, one layer locking technique and the best paper airplane base fold in the biz. John’s world record plane, Takuo Toda’s, is one of the most successful planes in international distance competition. John will show students how to make airplanes that ride a wave of air while at the same time teach students how to pilot the plane. All this knowledge is included in the fun. Think of this as a two day paper airplane boot camp where students will go from blank sheets to competition ready. For the last half of the second day, students may opt to make planes from John’s books (or other books containing folded designs) in a guided self-study way. If students have a problem following the instructions, John is there to help. There will also be options to experiment with your own designs.
