The Standard


Designed by Greg McKay, commercial airline pilot

You can find more planes here.

Design: “I based it on a traditional paper plane with a few alterations to make it fly slightly better and give it more stability.”

Attributes: “The alterations to the nose and rear section of the aircraft are different and it has winglets, all of which provide stability when flying. Winglets are the very end of airline wings – they are an upturned section that reduce the amount of drag caused by having a strict back wing.”

ShortList test flight result: We threw it hard, it boomeranged back in our face. Then we read Greg’s instruction that said not to throw it hard. So we lovingly caressed it into flight and off she went. Sexy.

Style: Greg has eschewed fancy graphics and thrown everything into aerodynamics. “Folding the nose in makes the front end heavier, which concentrates the weight towards the rear of the plane. Changing the centre of gravity makes the aircraft will glide better.”
