Does the wing of the paper airplane make it fly far?

The wing of the paper airplane can make it fly far. For a glider, make a large wingspan and light, evenly balanced weight. Also, the wider the wings are the easier it will be to gain lift and the more narrower the wings are the harder it will be to stay in the air longer.

What type of paper airplane design flies the farthest?

Well, It depends on the density of the paper, the wings, the hull, the design, the aerodynamics, and the lift it creates. One easy one is just to make the basic paper airplane, and experiment from there. But here are three good designs: The dragon, The champ, and nick's plane.
