Fortnite Season 7 is now live and available to play! Simply open up the Epic Games launcher and update to the latest version. In addition to a new winter-themed map, you can now learn how to fly a plane in Fortnite! Here’s how and where to get a plane in Fortnite Season 7.
How and Where to Get a Plane in Fortnite Season 7
The fastest way to get a plane in Fortnite Season 7 is by taking a trip to Frosty Flights on the easternmost point of the map.
Here, you’ll find the X-4 Stormwing Plane both in hangars and on the edge of the map. Simply go up to one and enter it to become the pilot.
With 5 seats and a mounted machine gun, you can bring your Squad along and use the plane to fight. You can also exit onto the wing and parachute down to the ground.
Here are all the features of the new Fortnite X-4 Stormwing Plane from the v7.00 Patch Notes:
- 5 total seats.
- Seats 4 passengers (on the wings) and a pilot.
- Has a mounted machine gun. Be careful, it can overheat.
- Players will go into the skydiving state when exiting the X-4 Stormwing.
- Use the roll buttons for sharp turns.
- Pressing both will fly upside down.
- Double tapping roll buttons will do a barrel roll.
- Can boost and airbrake for extra mobility.
How to Fly a Plane in Fortnite Season 7
Flying the plane is relatively easy. Use your mouse to adjust your view and go forward or back to either ascend or descend.
You’ll also see various controls on the left side of the screen. You can Roll Left or Right or even Roll Invert to go upside down. You can also Boost to go faster or Airbrake to slow down.
But while you may be up in the air, you’ll also be extremely vulnerable. Other planes can shoot you down, as can players on the ground.
Of course, you can also shoot back using the built-in turret. Just use the regular fire button if you’re piloting the plane. Players on the wing can also use their guns to shoot.
You’ll have a lot of fun piloting the Fortnite plane, shooting down enemies and flying over the new Christmas-themed areas!
