Paper airplane contest ready for take-off Tuesday

The last time Red Bull held a paper airplane contest on the UWindsor campus, the local winner advanced to represent Canada at the world championship. That’s what Milos Savic wants students to keep in mind as he helps to organize the Paper Wings “qualiflyer” set for noon Tuesday, March 31, in the St. Denis Centre.

“The defending national champion was from the University of Windsor and got to compete in Austria!” he says. “People don’t realize what they can get from this contest.”

Entrants compete in three categories: furthest distance flown, longest time airborne, and most aerobatic flight.

Windsor will be the second-last competition held across the country this year. That may give local contestants an edge, if they are willing to review the results of previous rounds.
