Sometimes it is but it most depend on the wind. :)

I am doing a science project in school. Subject: How does temperature affect the way a paper airplane flies?

Of course! If the airplane is very thick it will go very fast. I learned that from my project.

Yes. A wider winspan will make a paper airplane fly farther.

It depends on how the paper how it is made . But in general yes it does

The kind of paper chosen to make a paper airplane affects its weight. The best paper for making airplane is the light but firm paper. Firm paper prevents the paper plane from crumbling in the wind.

well some paper can be more heavy than other paper so yes

A lined paper airplane flies the farthest. It flies the farthest because it weighs less than any other type of paper. For example, it weighs less than an airplane made of construction paper and it weighs less than an airplane made of copy paper.

The effect of a hole on a paper airplane would depend on the type of paper airplane the hole is on, and where it is on the aircraft.

Paper, because it is much lighter, and a foil airplane will take up much more mass.

It enables the plane to rise or fall depending on wing length, paper weight, and strength of the throw.

Yes it does affect , it depends upon how thinner the paper is .

It affects the mass depending on the shape or the size of the paper airplane.

A paper airplane is affected by gravity, in proportion to its mass. The paper airplane will only stay aloft as long as the lift (upward force) is greater than or equal to the force of gravity (downward), plus the time it takes to fall to the ground. Thus, for the same amount of lift, a lighter airplane will fly farther.

paper i think paper i think it's paper it's way lighter than aluminum so it will go farther

The heavier weight of a thicker paper will affect the range of the flight, and different folding characteristics and stiffness will affect the aerodynamics.

the lighter the paper the easier the lift.Heavey paper will drop quicker.

The design of a paper airplane determines its ability to perform certain stunts, as many planes are designed to be inherently stable.

Construction paper will probaly fly best because it's thinker

Yes, it can. Weight, number of folds, and wingspan are all factors in making a paper airplane fly farther. A long-distance paper airplane (glider) should have large wings, a small fuselage, and evenly distributed (but also light) weight. It should be held and thrown from the center of gravity.
