If you would like to have a go at becoming the World Paper Aeroplane Champion, then here are the all important rules:
1. Paper planes must be constructed from the official A4 paper provided.
2. You may use any paper aeroplane form of your choosing, but there will be ten designs available should you need a helping hand with the design.
3. Paper planes may be created by folding only. No ripping of paper, using staples, etc allowed.
4. Aircraft must be launched by one person only, standing behind the official line.
5. Competitors may add their own plane noises for effect.
6. The longest distance will be measured with a standard tape measure, from the start line to where the plane lands.
The longest flight recorded in the championships so far measures an impressive 34.3 metres. Will you be able to beat it?
