The dart, also known as simply a paper airplane, is the best known traditional paper airplane design and one of the simplest. As the name suggests, the plane's flight is like a dart, straight and fast over a decent amount of time.

Folding the Model[edit | edit source]

Begin with a 8 1/2" by 11" (standard American printer paper) or a A4 sheet of paper.

  1. Fold paper in half long way.
  2. Fold the top two corners down.
  3. Bring the slanted edges to the center line.
  4. Fold on the long crease.
  5. Fold the wings down parallel to the back non-pointed end of the plane or fold the slanted edges to the lower edge.
  6. Spread wings at a ninety degree angle.
  7. Write a message for Monica and Mike
  8. When the bride and groom enter, send them a message!
  • Flight instructions: Hold behind the nose and throw with a quick motion. If folded and thrown properly, it will fly in a straight line for a moderate distance.
