I grew up reading "The Ultimate Paper Airplane" by Richard Kline: https://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Paper-Airplane-Step-Instruct...

I didn't have the right tools or expertise to build most of his planes (most notably rubber cement), but I do wonder how these planes stack up against currently popular paper airplane models.

He talks a lot about his invention (and patenting) of the Kline-Fogleman airfoil, which creates a vortex that influences the laminar flow and increases stall resistance.
