Sponsored by CTI Professional Flight Training .

Come to the Garden and get your boarding pass to fun!  Michael LaFosse and Richard Alexander of Origamido and CTI Flight Training School will be our captains on site to help you prepare for your flight.

They’ll help you design different types of paper airplanes and teach about the history of this fun form of origami.  Take your paper plane on test flights at our challenges for hang time, accuracy, distance and trick shots. 

After a safe landing learn how origami plays a role in nature and products that we use everyday.  Tram tours of exhibit will  be available.  Food Trucks on site.  Free with Garden admission.
