Fly in Minecraft in creative mode

If you are playing Minecraft in creative mode, you can fly at any time by pressing the jump button twice. While flying, your avatar will move faster than when walking on the ground. The speed increase is approximately 250% compared to moving on the ground.

While you are in flight, you can move using the same keys you use for ground movement and using the camera controls to guide the movement in various directions. To go up in altitude, just hold down the jump button, while to go down in altitude, just press the button to crouch.

In addition, when flying, you can increase your speed by an additional 200% by holding down the run button. However, if you press the jump button twice in a row, the flight will be canceled and you will crash to the ground (without too many consequences, since in the creative mode you do not receive any damage).

The flight, during the creative mode, is very important to be able to carry out the construction of one’s projects: it allows, in fact, to reach any position without having to erect scaffolding.

Fly in Minecraft in survival mode

During game sessions on Minecraft in survival mode, it is not possible to fly without the use of some gimmicks. In the next few lines, I’ll walk you through some methods that can help you perform this action.

The easiest way to fly in survival mode is to use the command console. First of all, you need to make sure that you have enabled this feature, without which you will not be able to enter the command that I will tell you about shortly.

If you are playing Minecraft on your computer, you can enable the command console in a session already created by pressing the Esc key on the keyboard and pressing the Open in LAN button. In the screen that is shown to you, then press the Commands item, so as to change the wording to Yes, then confirm the change by pressing the Start the world in LAN button, and that’s it.

The above method allows you to temporarily enable the command console during the current game session. However, you can enable this tool from the beginning in a new game, so that it is permanently active. To do this, in the Minecraft main menu, click the Single Player button and hit Create a new world.

Now, type the name of the world and press the More world options button, pressing the Commands button to change the wording to Yes. You just have to click on the Done button and on Create a new world. During the game, the command console can be used by pressing the T key on the keyboard.

If you play Minecraft on smartphone or tablet, in the main menu, tap on Play and select the items Create new > Random generation. At this point, scroll the screen and identify the item Activate the tricks, moving the lever next to it to ON. Then click on the Continue button and then on Create, to start a new game.

On an already created game, however, if you have not followed the steps indicated above, you can enable the command console by returning to the main game screen and pressing the Play button. Then locate the world you created and press the icon with the symbol of a pencil that you find next to it. Then follow the instructions I indicated in the previous lines to activate the tricks.

During any game, the command console can be reached by pressing the icon with the symbol of a speech bubble, located at the top.

After enabling the command console, open the chat and type the command / gamemode creative @p which will allow you to change the game from survival to creative mode. You can therefore refer to what is indicated in this paragraph on what are the commands to enable flight. You can return to survival mode at any time by typing the command / gamemode survival @p.

In addition to the above method, there is the possibility of using an item called Elitre, which consists of a set of wings that allows your avatar to glide after launching from an elevated position. In survival mode it is not easy to find this object, as you can collect it inside the chests you find in the End City.

Don’t you know what End City is? It is a city located in the End. It is a dimension similar to the Nether, but it represents the final point of arrival of each player, as the levels of challenge and difficulty are very high. The End consists of a central island protected by a dragon which, after eliminating it, generates portals to reach the outer islands. On these is the End City, a dangerous place but which contains various treasures, such as the Elitre.

Once you have this item, all that remains is to equip it and drop your avatar from a high position. Immediately after launching, you have to press the jump button to activate the wings to glide. During this phase, you can press the movement keys in conjunction with the camera commands, to change the direction of flight. If you use the Elitre in combination with the fireworks rockets, you can gain altitude and fly faster.

Mod to fly on Minecraft

If, on the other hand, you prefer to expand your gaming experience through the use of mods, there are some that I can recommend flying in Minecraft.

The first one I recommend is The Flying Things, which allows you to use flying carpets and magic brooms to move freely in flight. To use it, you need Minecraft Forge, a famous tool that allows you to manage Minecraft mods. If you want to know how to install and use it, I suggest you read my guide dedicated to the subject.

In creative mode, items to fly can be found within the inventory tab; in survival mode, however, you need a Phial of Animation (object of the mod) that can be found in the trunks, as an essential component for their creation. In addition, for the flying rugs you also need soul sand blocks, found only in the Nether, and regular rugs that can be made from wool. For the magic brooms, on the other hand, you also need lapis lazulifir woodcords and wheat.

After equipping the broom or carpet, by pressing the right mouse button, your avatar will climb onto these items. It will be possible to display two bars on the screen: one indicates the current speed which will be reduced when the energy, indicated by the second bar, is at zero.

There are other mods to fly in Minecraft. I suggest you get to the official Web site of CurseForge and type fly in the internal search engine to see all those that may be for you.
