By clicking one of these links you are leaving the City of Fayetteville website to access a third-party website.


Here are two of our favorite paper airplane sites.

www.funpaperairplanes.com has a slew of easy to difficult designs with instructions

 

The Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum website, http://airandspace.si.edu/ offers the opportunity to customize your plane with cool graphics. Print it, fold it and take off!

 


 

 Fly an airplane!

Terrific for youngsters, this  simple flight sim activity from The Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum website provides a basic overview of how airplanes are controlled by the pilot.

 

This is a fairly sophisticated flight sim from www.gefs-online.com that uses Google earth graphics. It took a little practice to master this one. You can land your Piper Cub or several other planes right here at Drake Field! Virtually of course.
