Largest Paper Airplane, he Pima Air & Space Museum launched a 45-foot long airplane paper airplane which glided at about 100 mph for 7 to 10 seconds before falling to the ground – setting the new world record for the Largest paper airplane, according to World Records Academy:

The Guinness world record for the Highest altitude paper plane launch was set by a team of British space enthusiasts who launched a paper aeroplane into space from a helium balloon at an altitude of 89,591 feet (27,307.39 m) or 17 miles above the earth’s surface. The plane, Vulture 1, had a wingspan of three feet, was made of paper straws, covered in paper and it took a year to construct.

Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most paper aircraft launched simultaneously: 12,672, organised by REALIZAR IMPACT MARKETING and FC PORTO at the Dragao Stadium, Porto, Portugal.

The Great Paper Airplane Project by the PIMA Air & Space Museum in Tuscon set out to make aviation history by constructing a nearly 14-metre-long paper airplane that would actually take off.

A helicopter pulled the plane to a height of 1,524 m and then released it so it could cruise high above the desert.
