We are now going to convert refined pulp into an aerodynamic mechanism that sustains flight. It will require precisely constructed foil that will, with the aid of external thrust, create lift. If the air pressure above the foil is less than the air pressure below the foil, and IF the thrust is applied with a measured velocity that will not impede that lift, you will have engineered a mechanism that will sustain flight.
