Teapot Riddle no.11 (fan made).

Rules:

I have one word which has several (2 or more) meanings.
Each of the meanings is a teapot (first, second ...).
You try to figure out the word with my Hints.

  • First Hint:

    My first teapot flies, and my second will lift.
    They take to the skies, but one can be a gift.

  • Second Hint:

    My first teapot smiles with no teeth to show.
    My second lifts piles from wood to cargo.

  • Third Hint:

    My first teapot's young, with some paper to fold.
    My second has swung, if too heavy to hold.

  • Final Hint (to make it easy):

    My third teapot stretches perhaps to see clear,
    But you could use glasses, or might instead peer.

Good luck and have fun!
Last riddle, of which I was inspired by to make this one. Big thanks to @Jannis for making them!

Here is the teapot riddle before the last one if you have not seen it!
Here is another fan-made teapot riddle.

  • $\begingroup$ I couldn't say much about the second teapot apart from the lifting, so I am glad you got it. When would you like the tick? $\endgroup$ – Feeds Sep 18 '18 at 0:25
