Aerodynamics

Question:Can you clarify for Aerodynamics, what is the maximum number of planes that can be thrown in the competition? I know you have four throws (two distance, two flight time) but can you make four planes and fly each once, or do you need to make two planes and fly each twice? The handbook states “Teams will have 5 minutes to build two paper airplanes onsite.” although the supply list indicates four sheets of paper are provided. Thanks.

Response:

There is no maximum number of planes. Each team will have 5 minutes to build at least two paper airplanes using the materials and tools provided. No airplane can be flown more than twice. There will be a total of four flights. Given the above, both of your examples are acceptable:

– make four planes and fly each once

or

– make two planes and fly each twice
