Wind tunnels help inventors and manufacturers of cars and airplanes understand how their designs will be affected by the flow of air over and around their designs. By reducing friction, cars and airplanes can go farther and faster while using less fuel. But we don’t care about fuel! We are testing paper, and we want to see how long we can keep your models in the air. Design your own paper airplane before testing it in one of our four-foot tall wind tunnels to see how long it will stay airborne. Be prepared to tweak your design for maximum flight time!
