Distance

No kerosene. No engines. Just a paper plane folded from a sheet of A4 paper and the skills to throw it further than anyone else. You get two attempts at one of the Qualifiers, and your best one will count. But only the national pilot with the longest distance will attend the World Final. Can you beat reigning champ Veselin Ivanov?

All contests need to be held indoor without any wind/air condition/ventilator.
Paper planes must only be constructed out of one piece of paper: standard A4 format, not more than 100 grams. The sheet must be modified by folding only! No ripping, gluing, cutting, stapling or ballasting is allowed!

The Flight control has to ensure that the pilots are participating with a folded paper plane - no other shapes like thin paper sticks or paper balls allowed!

Paper planes have to be built at site with the provided official paper.

The aircraft must be launched by one person throwing the aircraft unaided from behind a straight launch line marked on the floor. Passing over the launch line leads to disqualification. Touching the launch line or any point beyond during the launch, leads to an invalid attempt. After completion of the launch, the thrower may move beyond the launch line.

Two trials per participant are allowed. Different planes can be used, the better attempt counts.

The LONGEST DISTANCE has to be measured with a standardised tape measure or laser / video facility. Decisive for measurement are the base point on the starting line and the first point where the paper plane hits the ground or any object. Results need to be counted in m/cm or inches.

The results of the LONGEST DISTANCE Qualifier will be uploaded on the website (redbullpaperwings.com).

The national leader board on redbullpaperwings.com will define the LONGEST DISTANCE winner, who will attend the WORLD FINAL.

In case of a NATIONAL FINAL, the country will invite the best two participants of every Qualifier to the NATIONAL FINAL. The NATIONAL FINAL will define the LONGEST DISTANCE winner, who will attend the WORLD FINAL.

Airtime

Fold it, calibrate it and check the aerodynamics before releasing your plane for the longest time.
You get two attempts at one of the Qualifiers, and your best one will count. But only the national pilot with the longest airtime will attend the World Final. In 2015, Karen Hambardzumyan snatched victory for the longest airtime title with a 14.36 second flight. Can you dethrone her?

The Flight control has to ensure that the pilots are participating with a folded paper plane - no other shapes like thin paper sticks or paper balls allowed!

Paper planes have to be built at site with the provided official paper.

The aircraft must be launched by one person throwing the aircraft unaided from a reasonably static position. The participant needs to have both feet firm on the ground during the attempt. A run-up or fast walk as part of the launch is not permitted, nor the use of ramps or like devices.

Two trials per participant are allowed. Different planes can be used, the better
attempt counts.

Decisive for measurement are the moments when the paper plane leaves the
hand and first time hits the ground or any object. Results are counted in tenth of
seconds.

The results of the LONGEST AIRTIME Qualifier will be uploaded on the website (redbullpaperwings.com).

The national leader board on the website (redbullpaperwings.com) will define
