The Perfect Paper Aeroplane

Each year Cranfield University students have a bit of fun using their ‘aerodynamic’ skills to design the best paper aeroplane and see which can fly fastest and furthest.

We will be running this competition at Farnborough to see if we can beat the current record holder from this year’s competition at the University.

The competition looks at the following three categories:

- the aeroplane that travels the greatest distance

- the aeroplane that travels the maximum distance in the minimum time

- the aeroplane with the greatest technical merit - it has to fly well and a one page design review is also required.

We will provide the paper and tools!

In the morning come and collect blank paper or already crafted aeroplane templates and build at our stand (IZB20) or take away. The competition will then be held 12:30 - 13:00 in the Radlett Room within the Media Centre.
