    The hall was located beside a lakeside residence with high humidity level. Coupled with the low ceiling could only give me around 10 seconds.

About This Challenge

The longest time flying a paper aircraft is 29.2 sec and was achieved by Takuo Toda (Japan), in Fukuyama City, Hiroshima, Japan, on 19 December 2010.

Challenge Rules

  • Your paper aircraft flight must take place indoors, in a closed-air environment, such that wind does not affect the flight time. A warehouse, or mall is ideal
  • Your aircraft must be constructed from a single sheet of A4 or 8.5inx11in paper, with a maximum weight of 100gsm. Standard printer paper is fine.
  • You may cut the paper, but any pieces cut off may not be reattached.
  • You may use a single piece of clear sticky tape of maximum size 25mm by 30mm to hold down folds only. Other glues, paperclips, staples etc are not permitted.
  • You must throw your aircraft from a stationary position on a flat surface at the same level or below that which the aircraft lands on.
  • The timing starts when the plane is thrown, and ends when the plane touches the ground, or any other object/surface.
