Two airplanes designed by Michael LaFosse will be taught: Art Deco Wings and Shuttle Darts. They are both interesting to make and fly very well. If we have time, we can make two of each -- one from kami and one from magazine paper. The magazine paper planes tend to fly very well as they are light and the paper provides just the right combination of stiffness and flexibility. Art Deco Wings are great for stunt flying and naturally do a beautiful loop. Shuttle Darts are sleek airplanes with an especially ingenious feature. You will fold the nose so that it locks, thus keeping it in the desired orientation during flight.

Reclaimed paper from magazines, cut to squares of about 7 inches, will be provided.
