Flight in Minecraft has long been considered impossible. The Flight Simulator Mod for Minecraft, however, shakes things up a bit by bringing in a high quality, realistic way to fly around the Minecraft world. It offers an exceptional flight experience that mirrors real planes as much as possible while still keeping it entertaining and engaging.

You can take to the skies and explore these lands like never before, and even personalize your aircraft somewhat. The actual physics and requirements of the plane will add some challenges and realism to the experience without taking away any of the fun that you love about it.

Flying in Minecraft

The base appeal of the Flight Simulator Mod is the opportunity to fly. Few mods allow you to do this, or at least give you the chance to do it well. Flying in an actual aircraft is not something you see done often and certainly not something you see in a high quality mod. As a flight simulator, though, this gives you everything you could imagine and need. It is not just flying; it feels like an actual flight simulation game. The realism here makes it stand out from the rest.

Realistic flight is a major aspect of Flight Simulator Mod minecraft. Everything from the gauges to the physics bring in realism, as if this is an actual flight simulation game. Fans of full flight simulators will appreciate the level of detail that has gone into this mod, offering a true flight experience. It is not impossible to use, either. There are certainly challenges in using it, and mastering it is another matter entirely, but anyone can use this mod and have fun with it. You do not need flight sim experience to enjoy the care and quality that has gone into this mod.

Make It Your Own

Falling in love with the Flight Simulator Mod 1.10.2 is easier thanks to the personalization options. Personalization is key in making the aircraft your style and the flight according to your preferences. You can choose the appearance, engine, and other important pieces of the aircraft and flight.

Master It

Mastering the Flight Simulator Mod minecraft takes time and effort. As a flight simulator, it has depth to it that most other mods do not have. You need to put in the time and energy to become better, and you need to constantly practice. This mod challenges you to improve and to develop the skills for it.

Crafting planes and components is easy! Just use these recipes. Note that any recipe with a TS at the end of the name indicates that it is type-sensitive, and must be crafted with parts of the same type. This means that you can’t mix and match wood types with a TS recipe. You can, however, use ANY type of that material in the recipe, which influences its outcome. One example is the MC-172, which must be made with only one kind of wood, but takes the texture of that wood when crafted.

If you want to create a custom propeller or engine, you’ll need to know about their codes. When you use the give command you’ll need to input the code as the item’s damage value. Propellers are specified using a four-digit code number that defines their properties. The first digit is how many multiples of five the propeller’s diameter is above 70. The second specifies how many multiples of three the pitch is above 55 degrees. The third is how many blades the propeller has, while the fourth is the material code, with 0 standing for wood, 1 for iron, and 2 for obsidian. This means that the standard propeller for a MC-172 is an 1120, or 70+5*1=75in diameter, 55+3*1=58in pitch, 2 blade wooden propeller. Similarly, a 4241 would be a 90in diameter, 67in pitch, 4-blade iron propeller.

Engines are a bit simpler, in that they have only two parameters. The first two digits times 100 plus 1000 is the engine’s maximum RPM, while the last two digits divided by ten plus 1 is the fuel consumption per tick. This means that the basic small engine ([email protected]) has a code of 1800, while the advanced small engine ([email protected]) has a code of 2002. Remember that the fuel consumption is based on the engine spinning at the maximum RPM; the [email protected] engine uses only 1.12 units of fuel per tick at 2800RPM.

Controls:

  • W: Pitch down
  • S: Pitch up
  • A: Roll left
  • D: Roll right
  • I: Increase throttle
  • K: Decrease throttle
  • J: Yaw left
  • L: Yaw right
  • Y: Flaps up
  • H: Flaps down
  • B: Brake (disables parking brake)
  • RIGHT_SHIFT+B: Engage parking brake
  • M: Start engine – you can also hit the propeller until the engine starts
  • RIGHT_SHIFT+M: Stop engine
  • PG_DOWN: Zoom out
  • PG_UP: Zoom in
  • RIGHT_CONTROL: Toggle camera auto-follow

Pre-flight checklist:

Before you go flying, there’s a few things you should know:

  • If you need to access the plane’s GUI, just shift-right-click the center of the plane.
  • Planes require fuel to fly. Currently their internal combustion engines run on liquid lava, which can be inserted into the fuel tank by opening the GUI and placing a bucket of lava into the slot with the gas pump icon. If the bucket doesn’t fill it means that the fuel tank is full, or there’s no room for the empty bucket in the adjacent slot. Each bucket provides 1000 units of fuel.
  • Should you run out of fuel during flight, don’t panic! Planes can glide for a long way even without power.
  • Remember that the faster the engine is running, the more fuel it consumes. When you get up to your desired altitude you can let off the throttle to conserve fuel. This doesn’t result in much of a speed loss, and makes flying much more fluid.
  • Flaps are used for takeoff and landing. 10 degrees is customary for takeoff, while landings can use as much flap as necessary to slow down. Make sure to remove the flaps after takeoff, as they slow you down and increase drag.
  • Braking force depends on how many wheels you have on the ground. Landing crooked is not advised as it reduces the effectiveness of your brakes. Also note that planes won’t turn on the tarmac well unless all wheels are down, so keep that in mind when speeding on taxiways.
