How to fly planes in GTA 5 on PC in 2024 and beyond

1)Take off


Once users get onto a plane in GTA 5, they first need to learn to take off. All they must do is hold the ‘W’ key on the keyboard and watch the plane move forward when on land.

For the plane to take off, players need to hold the ‘Num5’ button for the plane’s nose to lift off from the ground. When the plane is in the air, they have to press ‘G’ to take up the wheels.

2) Maneuvering the plane in the game


Once the plane is airborne, gamers can control the plane’s direction by pressing ‘W’, ‘S’, ‘A’, and ‘D’. These buttons turn the aircraft in the desired direction.

Users can tilt the plane by pressing ‘Num 4’ to roll the aircraft towards the left and ‘Num 6’ to do so towards the right.

Pressing the ‘Num 8’ pitches the aircraft towards the front, which means moving the nose down. Players can lift the plane’s nose by pressing ‘Num 5’.

3) Landing the plane in the game


To land planes in the game, players must find a long straight road to land. The next step is getting the aircraft as close to the land as possible by pressing ‘Num 8’. They then need to pull out the wheels for the plane by pressing ‘G’.

Gamers must watch the speed and altitude of the plane while bringing it to the floor, and the last thing they need to do once the plane has touched the ground is to press ‘S’ to stop the aircraft in the game.
