Narwhal Is A Cool Paper Airplane That Flies Good

Here’s another cool paper airplane for everyone, the Narwhal is inspired by the classic Dart paper airplane and the narwhal. The narwhal looks similar to a large seal, it’s definitely as cute as one, but has a huge sharp, long tusk. If you don’t know what a narwhal is, definitely google some pictures of one. Once you see a picture, you’ll know why narwhals are often referred to as the “unicorn of the sea”!

*WARNING: The tip of the Narwhal paper plane is extremely sharp (just like the narwhal), don’t throw this paper aeroplane at anyone.

**Distance: I flew the Narwhal lightly at the beginning of the tutorial video indoors, the flight distance is around 8 meters (approx. 26 feet). I’m sure this paper plane will fly much farther given the chance.

Difficulty Level: Easy/Medium.

Time: 2-3 minutes.

TIP: If you have not watch my video on how to make a perfect paper airplane fold, click on the link and watch it now. Make sure you use this technique every time you fold a paper airplane.

Step 1: Fold a piece of paper in half lengthwise. Unfold.
Step 2: Fold the two corners up and align with the center crease.
Step 3: Fold the sides of the wings and align to the center crease.
Step 4: Fold the nose of the paper airplane up and align with the back edge of the paper.
Step 5: Fold the nose of the paper airplane back down. The crease should align with the inside fold of the wings, see the red circles in the picture above.
Step 6: This part is a little tricky. Fold the front section of the nose/wings to the center crease, do not crease all the way! This creates a small pocket you need to flatten in step 7 below. If you cannot understand the steps in the pictures, I suggest you watch the video tutorial at the top of this page.
Step 7: Flatten the pocket created in step 6, notice how the front edge of the pocket is parallel to the front edge of the wings. Again, if you are having trouble understanding this step, watch the tutorial video at the top of this page.
Step 8: Repeat step 6 and step 7 for the other side of the wings.
Step 9: You’ve completed the hardest part of the Narwhal paper airplane! Fold it in half now making sure the wings are perfectly matching.
Step 10: Fold the wings of the paper airplane. The edge of the wings needs to line up with the bottom edge of the fuselage.
Step 11: Fold both wings making sure again that they are perfectly aligned. Open up the wings and you’re done! This is optional, I like to loop a piece of tape around the nose/tusk of the Narwhal to keep the paper airplane together. Let it fly!
