How To Enable Flying On A Minecraft Server?

Flying in Minecraft sounds like an extremely fun thing to do, right?!

Well, it seems like a lot of people agree with us on this, since there are multiple ways in which you can enable flying on a Minecraft server!

Minecraft doesn’t provide the ability to fly in the game on its own. Flying can be enabled with the help of customized methods, and that’s what I’ll be talking about in this guide today!

How To Enable Flying On A Minecraft Server?

Tweaking the Private Server Settings

If you’re privately hosting a Minecraft server, then you’re in luck! Enabling flying in privately hosted servers is quite simple.

Firstly, you’ll have to go to your Server page and turn the server off.

Navigate to the “Config Files” option in the page. Depending on your hosting server, it should be somewhere on the left or the top. For the purpose of this article, I’ll show you examples using the Apex Hosting Server.

Once you’re in “Config Files”, look for the option named “Server Settings” or a file called “” and click on it.

The first thing you’ll notice in the resulting window is the “Allow Flying” feature. Change this feature to “Enabled” from “Disabled”.

This feature may have different names in your hosting server. A common name for this is “allow_flight” which will be set to “False”. You’ll need to toggle the feature to “True” to enable flying in your server. Make sure you save the changes!

Lastly, turn your server back on and hop into the game.

If you hadn’t turned the server off beforehand, you can restart the server and things will work out just fine!

You should be able to fly quite easily by pressing the “Space” key (for PC/MAC) or the “Jump” button (for Phones and Consoles) twice!

Cheats make it surprisingly easy to enable flying in Minecraft, but you have other options as well for your single game adventure (or even multiplayer) – or anything that doesn’t involve a full, sever-wide change.

Other Methods for Flying

While some of these methods don’t apply to enabling flying on private Minecraft servers, it might come in handy in the future!

Flying in Creative Mode

You can fly in Minecraft in the Creative Mode of the game. Creative Mode is one of the game modes where the survival aspects are absent and you can create whatever you want with unlimited resources.

One of the commands in creative mode will let you fly in-game without any kind of hassle. Just double-click on Space of your keyboard or the Jump button on your console/phone and you’ll be able to fly!

Custom Mods

There are several custom mods in Minecraft that gives the option to easily fly, with the help of jetpacks or commands. Mods like “fly mod 3d” or “Simply Jetpacks 2” provide various functionalities while flying in Minecraft.

Elytra and Firework Rockets

Using Elytra is the only way you can fly in Minecraft Survival mode, if you’re not willing to use cheats or playing in Creative mode.
