GTA 5: How to fly a Plane

Piloting an airplane is something that most normal people will never get to experience in their lifetime. So it makes a ton of sense why planes and aircraft have this undeniable charm in video games.

The Grand Theft Auto franchise has featured aircraft and planes as far back as Grand Theft Auto III. The ever nostalgic Dodo Seaplane was the first ever aircraft that players could pilot and take out for a quick spin. Unfortunately, fixed-wing aircraft won’t make a consistent appearance in succeeding titles in the franchise, as only Grand Theft Auto: Vice City/Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas would feature pilotable fixed-wing aircraft natively in-game.

Rockstar Games more than made up for the lack of planes in past games with GTA 5, which features more planes than all of the other Grand Theft Auto games combined.

Where to find a plane in GTA 5

The easiest and fastest way to get a plane in GTA 5 is through cheats. Fortunately, there are a couple of cheat codes you can try to spawn a plane instantly in GTA 5.

Duster

  • PC – Type in “FLYSPRAY” in the in-game cheat console.
  • PS3/PS4/PS5 – RIGHT, LEFT, R1, R1, R1, LEFT, TRIANGLE, TRIANGLE, X, CIRCLE, L1, L1
  • Xbox 360/One/Series X|S – RIGHT, LEFT, RB, RB, RB, LEFT, Y, Y, Y, A, B, LB, LB
  • Cellphone Cheat – 1-999-359-77729 (1-999-FLY-SPRAY)

Stunt Plane

  • PC – Type in “BARNSTORM” in the in-game cheat console.
  • PS3/PS4/PS5 – CIRCLE, RIGHT, L1, L2, LEFT, R1, L1, L1, LEFT, LEFT, X, TRIANGLE
  • Xbox 360/One/Series X|S – B, RIGHT, LB, LT, LEFT, RB, LB, LB, LEFT, LEFT, A, Y
  • Cellphone Cheat – 1-999-2276-78676 (1-999-BARN-STORM)

Another way to acquire an airplane in GTA 5 is to head to Los Santos International Airport. You’d be hard-pressed not to find an aircraft here, as numerous planes are parked in random hangers in the airport itself. Just make sure you’re prepared to face some heat from the police, as you will automatically gain Wanted Stars by entering the Los Santos International Airport if you do not own a hanger.

Last but not least, you can find a couple of planes at the McKenzie Field Hangar, where a BF Injection or a Duster can be parked outside the hangar.

When taking off and landing, you must adjust the plane’s pitch by pressing 8 or 5 on the number pad on your keyboard or pushing up or down on the Left Joystick on the console. Of course, you must ensure you are up to speed before the plane can start gaining altitude.

Flight Control

Flying a plane in GTA 5 is fairly simple once you get a hang of it, and there is not really any legitimate excuse for the GTA 5 veteran not to know how to fly a plane.

Nevertheless, the more casual players who have never completed GTA 5’s story mode will likely not know how to fly an airplane in-game. Hopefully, through the controls guide above, you can experiment and teach yourself how to fly and land a plane easily in Grand Theft Auto 5.
