"[Here are] patterns for 16 gliders. Schmidt supplies a history of glider development, instructs readers in the basic principles of aerodynamics, and describes how to test and launch the paper gliders. Pattern pieces and the detailed step-by-step instructions leave little room for error."--Booklist. "Serious paper airplane crafters will welcome the(se)...gliders. However, the book is as valuable for its account of the history of motorless planes. Schmidt makes the construction as easy as possible with plenty of tips about safety and technique."--School Library Journal.
