How to Use Elytra to Fly

Flying with Elytra in Minecraft is easy once you equip it as armour in your chest plate slot. Here are the steps to fly using Elytra:

  1. Look for a high peak or mountain and climb it.
  2. Run towards the cliff and quickly double-press the jump button to activate Elytra and start gliding.

How to get the Boost Effect:

  • Craft Firework Rockets by combining Gunpowder and Paper to create a jetpack effect.
  • Equip the Firework Rockets and start gliding in the air using Elytra.
  • As you begin to fall, use the fireworks to propel yourself upward for a boost.
  • Alternatively, you can also use the Trident with the Riptide enchantment to quickly launch yourself into the air.


In Minecraft, Elytra is an item that can be used to glide through the air. However, as you use it, its durability bar decreases. If you want to repair it, you will need an Anvil and Phantom Membranes. First, you need to obtain Phantom Membranes from a mob called Phantoms.

Once you have the membranes, open the Anvil menu and place the Elytra and the membrane in it. Then, drag the healed Elytra and place it back in your inventory. To increase Elytra’s life, you can use Enchanted Books like Unbreaking and Mending.

That’s all you need to know about getting and using Elytra in Minecraft. Happy flying!
