The maps in Minecraft can be huge, so it’s no wonder that many players prefer flying rather than walking. Flying in “Minecraft” means traveling faster and more efficiently without interruptions by mountains, trees and bodies of water.
There are several ways of fly when playing “Minecraft”. In Creative mode, flying is as simple as tapping a key or button on the console. In Survival mode, however, you’ll need to gain the ability to fly by finding an equippable item called Elytra.
Here is everything you need to know about how to reach take-off in “Minecraft”, whatever your play style.
How to fly in “Minecraft” using Creative or Spectator mode
As you probably know, Minecraft has different game modes and play styles. In Creative and Spectator modes, you are less like a gamer and more like a god of the game.
Part of this is your ability to fly freely anywhere, anytime. Just double tap the jump button quickly – on a computer, for example, this will be the space bar.
Once in flight, you can hold the jump button to get up and hold the crouch button to fall. You can also hold the Sprint button in mid-air to fly faster.
Double tap the jump button again to stop flying. Since you are in Creative or Spectator mode, you will not take any damage if you fall from a great height.
Just don’t fall into thin air – for example, the voids between islands in The End – or you’ll die and have to respawn.
How to fly in “Minecraft” using Elytra in Survival mode
For the brave and patient souls who don’t dare to use Creative mode, flight is still possible in Survival mode. But it’s harder and you can’t fly that freely.
To fly in Survival mode, you will need to find the rare Elytra item, which is somewhere in a target ship.
Finding the Elytra
The End Ships they are located on the edge of The End, the dimension in which the Ender Dragon lives. Each time you defeat the Ender Dragon, two portals are created: one that will take you to the credits and then home, and another that will take you to the End Islands.
If you don’t want to face one of the game’s biggest villains yet and are a patient builder, you can also build a bridge from the Ender Dragon lair to an End town. Keep in mind that this can be time-consuming and will require a lot of resources – the closest island is over 1000 blocks away.
If you take this route, place a bed near your portal to the final world to create a spawn point, as falling out of the world to death will be a potential danger.

However you get there, once you find an End City in the distant islands, your best bet to find Elytra is to board an End Ship. Just over half of End Cities has one of these ships.
Inside the ship, find a level inlaid with blocks of black obsidian. There you’ll see the Elytra in an item frame, lined with two chests – which you should definitely loot too – and defended by a Shulker. Break the object’s frame to claim the elytra.
Fly with the Elytra in Minecraft
Elytra it works very differently from the type of flying you do in Creative and Spectator modes. It’s more like gliding, and you can’t fly forever. However, you can hack it by equipping fireworks while gliding.
To use the Elytra, you’ll need to equip your wings in your character’s armor slot. From there, climb to a great height, fall and press the jump button once to start flying.
As you fly with Elytra, pay attention to real-world physics. Flying too sharply can cause stalling and falling out of the sky. And hitting the ground or a wall too fast could kill you.
When your legs start to wobble while gliding with an Elytra, it is an indication that you are losing altitude. If you’re not ready to go down yet, equip a firework rocket in your hotbar and use the item. This will give you a big speed boost, shooting yourself back into the sky. You can, in theory, fly as long as you have fireworks to spend.
Just note that the Elytra also has its own duration, which will decrease more flights. You can repair an elytra by combining it with two phantom membranes on an anvil or by combining two damaged elytra.
