Have you ever wondered if there were paper airplanes before the Wright brothers? Logical thinking, one would believe that paper airplanes would be discovered during or around the time of our first manned flight. Oddly though, the invention of papers airplane dates back centuries before Orville and Wilbur Wright took their legendary first flight in 1903. Although simplistic in design, Ancient China was credited with creating the first paper gliders.
Around 500 BCE, China’s paper industry was in full production. With so much paper resources, origami and paper-folding became a vastly popular pastime for the masses. Since the invention of paper, people have been determined to create the perfect paper glider.
The Wright brothers enjoyed creating paper airplanes as well. They were known to use paper airplane models to aid in their creation of the first flying machine. Now pin-pointing exactly who created the first paper glider would be impossible nor how soon after the idea of “air mail” came into being. We do know how useful paper airplanes are when you’re dealing with a frustrating document in the office. With a few quick folds you have the perfect glider to send your troublesome document right into the trash…that is if you have good aim.
