POCKET FLYERS PAPER AIRPLANE BOOK
By KEN BLACKBURN – 4 time Guinness World Record Holder
Paper airlines can be so much fun! But how do you get those airplanes to really fly? And how do you get them to go far? And stay up in the air? Help is here!
Young aviators and paper folding enthusiasts will gain tips from true aviation experts on how to send each plane soaring at its full aerodynamic potential!
On Oct 3 – talk to KEN BLACKBURN who is a 4-time Guinness World Record holder for paper airplanes!
The engineers and creators of The World Record Paper Airplane Book and Kids’ Paper Airplane Book, Ken Blackburn and Jeff Lammers, are back with a revamped POCKET FLYERS PAPER AIRPLANE BOOK and swooping to new heights with two entertaining new companions: SPACE FLYERS PAPER AIRPLANE BOOK AND FLYING CREATURES PAPER AIRPLANE BOOK (Workman Publishing, on sale: October 3, 2017, ages 8 & up).
Discover the world of miniature aviation with vibrantly colored and gorgeously designed collections of aircraft, spacecraft, and flying creatures—from the Saber to the Phoenix, the Alien Clipper to the Cosmojet, and the Beetlebot to the Stinger..
Perfect for holiday gifting and flying in the office or the classroom (shhh!), Pocket Flyers Airplane Book, Space Flyers Paper Airplane Book, and Flying Creatures Paper Airplane Book will serve as a fun introduction to STEM for younger folders and transport the young at heart to a favorite childhood activity.
Ken Blackburn is an aerospace engineer and four-time Guinness World Record holder for paper airplane time aloft (last record: 27.60 seconds). How he set the record:
• Developed the World Record airplane at 13years old
• Set record 4 times from 1983 to 1998
• Key to doing better is more practice, work harder
Ken will REVEAL: THE SECRETS OF HOW TO MAKE A SUCCESSFUL WORLD RECORD AIRPLANE!
He’ll also teach your listeners about the keys and tricks to paper airplanes fly successfully including:
• Lift is from fast air over airfoil
• Fast air comes from curvature and nose up at an angle
FLAPS / Controls
• Paper airplane elevator keeps nose up at an angle
• Wing Angle
• Keeps plane from rolling over
• Most important for low speed turns
• Paper airplane rudder
• Bend right to turn right, left to go left
• Heaviest part forward
• Wing moved aft
About the Authors: Ken Blackburn works for the Air Force doing aeronautical research in Florida. Co-author Jeff Lammers is an engineer and entrepreneur based in Colorado. He flies small planes in his spare time
