Thirty new aircraft, all original, all flyable, six of them for novice folders! Each chapter opens by profiling someone who was influential in the history of aviation: Louis Bleriot, first to fly the English channel; Burt Rutan, visionary designer of privately built spacecraft; Robert Goddard, the father of modern rocketry, and many more. Every section features information about real airplanes, aircraft materials, engines, and landing gear. Even the paper is new: this squadron uses the square preferably kami, Japanese origami paper. And to recognize these models as works of aviation art, there's even a selection of display stands to fold.
