  This is assuming something with a greater camber than, say, a piece of
paper or a flat feather, in order to generate thrust?

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
