Developed from

OAE F115-1 Simple Skystreak

The OAE TF115-1 Apprentice is a simple, durable primary trainer paper airplane intended for introducing new aviators to paper airplane operations. The TF115-1 was developed from its relative, the OAE F115-1 Simple Skystreak by OrigamiAirEnterprises as an alternative to the OAE TF225-1 Turbo Cadet. The Apprentice's configuration, however, has more in common with the older OAE TF85-1 Cadet though. The TF115-1 was supplanted by the OAE TA164-1 SkyCub, which was developed as a replacement.


Construction details of the Apprentice can be found here.


The Apprentice is a rather conservative paper airplane, and is very stable. The aircraft's leading edges are quite tough and can survive most landings with minimal maintenance. With proper construction and launch technique, the Apprentice can fly over 30 feet easily. Addtional applicable surfaces include elevators, ailerons, elevons, spoilers, spoilerons and air brakes.
