The Paper Plane World Record


You might think the airplanes are just fun, quick-to-make toys for kids, but there is a world of paper plane-makers who are dead serious and with a mission of making the world record planes.

Do you know what is a world record distance for throwing paper planes?

With a series of simple folds and carefully placed tape, a paper plane can exceed distances of 69 metres.

The current world record holds paper plane named”Suzanne”, creation of John Collins and Joe Ayoob. In 2012 their plane flew 69.14 metres (226 ft and 10 inches).

World Record Paper Airplane Distance


The winning design is a combination of origami and aerodynamics. The Professional football player Joe Ayoob, broke the Guinness world record for the farthest distance flown.
After winning the world record, Mr. Collis has set up a  video that shows how to make “Suzzane” with complete folds and tape positions. He is challenging everyone to try and beat his record of 69.14 metres.
Mr. Collins wants to launch a national paper contest in the US.
