Making paper planes is no longer a breeze. Especially when the world record is a flight of more than 69 m – made in 2012 in a hangar of an aeronautical base near Sacramento (USA) by the American Joe Ayoob, a former football player. A straight throw, then a sudden climb of the craft, before a descent and a long end of flight in glider. Enough to shine the eyes of aviation students at the Polytechnic Institute of Advanced Sciences (IPSA), located in Ivry, which hosted this Thursday the qualifying events of the world championship to launch paper plane. An event sponsored by the RedBull Energy Drink brand.

"Better to be an engineer"

"It's a kid's dream. I had not imagined, years ago, that by throwing them on teachers, I trained at the same time for a world title, "said, half-amused, half serious, one of the students in aeronautical engineering determined to qualify in each of two events: distance (the record to beat for this event is 53.22 m) and flight time (14, 36 seconds).
