Pocket Planes


Cause they fold flat and fit in your pocket! And for teachers- a whole class-worth of planes fits in a shoebox til the next aerodynamics lesson!



'Cause they're FULLY ASSEMBLED, Out of the box! All you do is click 'em together and FLY!


Aero Aerodynamics are simple and easy to understand. A fun and informative Operation Manual comes with your plane, so you know what makes them fly.


Aero Pocket Planes come from the original design of Flexwings in the 1960s; Flexwings used a fabric for a single surface wing. MAKER TOYS made Rigid/Flexwings, with our cambered surfaces forming airfoils, with an upper and a lower surface to our wings. This allows us to control airflow and adjust for smooth flight, using shuttlecock stability and a low aspect ratio, lifting body aerodynamic shape, common to most paper airplanes. What sets Aero Pocket Planes apart is our dynamic, ajustable leading edge that controls lift, drag, roll, bank and yaw. See the comparison below to see how flexibility is built into the Aero design.


You'll be AMAZED! Aero Pocket Planes fly like no paper airplane you've ever flown...and you can adjust for every flight! Everything you see here comes with your Aero plane- when you get it, you can read and learn and, maybe have some fun at the same time!

They're made of WHAT?

You have a choice. Paper or Plastic. Paper can tear, wrinkle from water, droplets on grass, oceans, lakes, puddles. Those are the enemies of the paper airplane. Our Plastic version, however, sneers at those moisture issues (mostly) as it's water RESISTANT; (not water proof). How can that be, you ask?


We use a SPECIAL, VERY EXPENSIVE paper... inner and outer-laminated plastic paper. It's made for making maps and documents where permanence is important, especially in the elements of the outdoors or spills. Paper Tyger is made in the USA. We have to ship it to us in Philippines, make it into planes and then ship it to you. So; it's not cheap. One smart way to do it is to have mostly paper planes, and just a few Paper Tyger planes, like where the teacher gets plastic and kids get paper. It's more affordable. Our new Paper PocketPlanes are made affordable for all kids, everywhere. Not everybody can have an expensive paper airplane. But, now, you can. It's up to you. We make both.

Decisions, decisions.

It’s really all about price, isn’t it? That’s okay. Cause it’s really the same plane, it has to do with how you plan to use it.

Teaching a class of kids? Going hiking and wanna do something fun when you get there? Going to the ocean or swimming hole?  We make both, and they’re both great flying planes. And; in the end, environmentally speaking; both have their place in the world, don’t they? So, we’re meeting needs of an environmentally friendly future, and meeting needs of harsh environmental uses of die-hard toy-flying people. The decision is yours..)


It's your choice. Same great plane, whether it's our inexpensive environmental PAPER, or our super-durable, tear-proof, water-resistant PLASTIC! The difference is just price. The planes are the same.




We use special paper made from “plantation-grown, environmentally responsible” tree farms to make our planes

They’re also Bio-degradably responsible as well; after many great flights, great fun, learning principles of flight while getting exercise, they will eventually return to earth in an “ok” way. Again, in an environmentally friendy way.

These are our SUPER-AFFORDABLE planes; for ALL kids, everywhere, rich and poor. Everybody. Perfect for classrooms, where not every kid is as “into” the class as the next kid; I guarantee they’ll ALL enjoy their time flying their own plane, and seeing their friends fly theirs. These are memories they’ll always have. All from the ethereal moments of flight, of a paper airplane.

Paper Tyger is BOTH plastic AND paper. They look and feel the same; only when you try to tear it, it WON’T tear!

Paper Tyger is made for maps and documents that will be exposed to weather and tough handling; in and out of pockets, like a pocket plane…so PERFECT for  Pocket Panes!

It’s very expensive; like about fifty times the cost of normal paper.

Naturally; if we want our fun snd great flying planes durable; and it costs more; we pay the extra cost. Don’t we? Sure, we do. It’s worth it.



Plastic (Acetate)

Plastic today is durable. Not when I was a kid, but today it is. Clear, silvered, even colored; our plastic planes are dureble and in some ways, better flying; especially in winds near water, outdoors.

Handling plastic, printing on it; forming it is all more difficult, more costly then paper. But, again; can be worth the cost. A plane you can carry with you everywhere you go, never worry about moistuire, weather, environment you wanna fly it in, well, there’s no way to put a price on that, is there?

Besides; they LOOK cool..)



Graphics. What's it look like? What image? Cartoons? Serious Art? Images of planes in a Museum's collection? Cool stripes that show airflow? Cool pictures of YOU? What? Well, guess what? WE CAN PRINT ANYTHING ON OUR AERO PAPER POCKET PLANES!!! So, now you can fly a dollar bill; or a P-38; or your favorite family member. No problem, we'll do it for you. Of course, it'll be integrated with our copyrighted Aero graphics, but that just makes it look even cooler. And, of course, we get to be judicious about what goes on our planes, but that'll be okay too. Have a look at a few pics below. Use the contact button and tell us what you want on your planes. It'll be a blast..)



Go to the GALLERY?

Here’s where you can see what’s already available online. Our planes in Museums are there for their stores only; here you can get what we make to sell here, online. Remember, we can make YOUR PLANES, with your graphics, for YOU! (minimum and minor charges are shown as necessary for us to stop production to get your order in…) Contact us for your custom graphics, and for volume discounts.
