How to Build a Flying Machine in Minecraft

Minecraft is a video game in which players create and break apart various kinds of blocks in three-dimensional worlds. The game’s two main modes are Survival and Creative. In Survival, players must find their own building supplies and food.


I have been wanting to build a flying machine for a while now, but I never got around to it because my computer was too slow and I didn’t have enough space in my house. But then one day I found out that Minecraft could be used as an actual flying machine! If you want to find out how this works, keep reading!

Gather a lot of slime blocks.

Now that you have a castle, it’s time to gather some slime blocks. Slime blocks are found in swamps, villages, witch huts and towers. They can also be found in pyramids but they’re not as common as other types of blocks like sand or stone so don’t worry if you don’t see any when you first start out!

Slime Block Tips:

Build a really big square box using the slime blocks

You’ll need a really big square box.

Make sure that the box is big enough for your player to fit in, and also big enough for them to move around in while flying.

Build a little box out of slime blocks on top of

Once that’s done, build a little box out of slime blocks on top of it as shown in the picture. This is your new engine! You’ll need to make sure that whatever you build is the same size as your original bottom box and not touching it, otherwise it won’t work properly.

Attach a piston to each corner piston on the top box

You’ll need to attach a piston to each corner piston on the top box. A piston is a piece of redstone dust that has been attached to another block and can open or close by pulling or pushing on it. It also has several other features, but we’ll get into those later.

Now that your hopper is done being powered by pistons and redstone dust (if you didn’t already know), let’s move onto our next step: getting some food!

Attach another piece of Redstone dust to the bottom Redstone dust

You should now have a string of redstone dust (the bottom one is on a block). This is your basic flying machine! You can now attach whatever you want under this platform and make it fly around.

Now push your flying machine! It will go really high!

Now it’s time to push your flying machine! It will go really high!

You should be able to fly high, far, fast and slow. You can also fly in any direction. And if you’re feeling adventurous, try flying at night or during rainstorms!


That’s it! You have built a flying machine in minecraft. The next step is to make it go higher and faster by adding more pistons on each side of your box. Have fun!
