  Joseph Palmer's Paper Airplane
One of the goals on this design was to have every fold referenced to either the paper itself, or to another fold.
   Unlike the common schoolyard 'dart' designs, these planes are designed to have lift; if you throw at a point on the ground about 10 feet away — they will fly up.
The plane must be folded from a single piece of 8

Paper Helicopter OK! So it isn't a plane but it is a good model and when simply dropped it will stay aloft for ages and spiral down excellently.
Paper Rocket You're right this is not a paper airplane either but is supremely simple to make and has some very interesting science behind it.
Paper Frisbee This is great fun and best made out of small squares of paper maybe 15cm by 15cm (6" by 6") and thrown like a normal frisbee it will fly quite well especially indoors.

Your goal is to have it glide smoothly and gently to the ground, either flying straight or in a gradual curve.
After the kinetic energy (that is, the energy you put into it by throwing it) of the initial throw has dissipated, paper planes are gliders powered by gravity.
Paper makes a good wing because it's impermeable to air: In a single sheet of paper, multiple layers of interlocked fibers prevent air from flowing through.

Hold the plane with its wings in a vertical plane and the length of the plane horizontal, hold the plane with the wings perpendicular to the wind, or in the gentle blast of air from a fan.
The plane will always pivot about its center of gravity, if it pivots to the left, the larger tail behind the center of gravity is hit by moving air and pushes the nose back to the right.
Planes are made stable against roll by folding the wings up so that when viewed from the back of the airplane they look like a Y, This is called dihedral.

Paper (copier or computer printer paper works best), some 1/2" or 3/4" cellophane tape, and a paper clip.
After folding the paper back, put a small piece of tape at the wing tips and at the center at the points marked A, B, and C. Now fold the plane along the center crease so that it creates a flattened out 'V'.
Keep the nose of the plane from rising (stalling) by adding a small weight to the nose (point D), a paper clip or two does nicely.

This second paper and tape hyperbolic surface (used in classes and workshops for the next 11 years) was the one that Daina witnessed in use.
This is the usual upper half plane model of the hyperbolic plane thought of as a map of the hyperbolic plane in the same way that we use planar maps of the spherical surface of the earth.
Thus, we have established that the annular hyperbolic plane is the same as the usual upper half plane model of the hyperbolic plane.

Living on a torus is not the same as living on a plane or even on a sphere.
In order to convert a disk back into the original projective plane endpoints of every diameter should be identified because when we glued two halves together one was flipped in the horizontal axis.
The reasons for this shape to be called Projective Plane is that it actually models geometry of the plane obtained through a perspecitve transformation.

 The Helix
Modern planes are extremely complex machines, but we can still discover a lot about flight by making simple models (in fact, all new planes are tested as models in wind tunnels before they carry their first human passengers).
There are two main types of paper aircraft: those that need to be thrown and fly quite fast, and gliders that are released gently and move more slowly.
If you make two flaps on the back of the plane's wings and bend one up and one down, you might be able to get it to fly in a straight line while twisting in circles as it goes.

How on earth can you shoot down a plane that has hundreds of innocent passengers merely because it has been hijacked.
Just because someone picks up a para or two from the policy and places it out of context does not mean that I can form my opinion on that.
