The Great Paper Airplane Fly-Off

Returning in April of 2021:

After thorough consideration we have made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s Great Paper Airplane Fly-Off, originally scheduled for Saturday, April 18, 2020.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and continued support as we have taken this action to ensure everyone’s health is protected and to follow the best practices and advice of local, state, and national guidelines to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

We did not arrive to this decision lightly but have already received commitments from our sponsors to come back with an even stronger tournament in April of 2021!

The Great Paper Airplane Fly-Off is our exclusive competition for kids ages 6 to 14 awarding a 60-minute introductory airplane flight over Tucson for the longest throw for a paper airplane in each age group. This event is free for all participants!  

Participants receive a FREE t-shirt and can bring 4 guests to the event. Everyone at the event is eligible for great door prizes including NASCAR race tickets; NFL Tickets; Mars Chocolate North America candies and more. Advanced registration is required (when it opens register early, it fills up!).
