uPlanes is a plugin which adds smooth, fly-able planes to Minecraft. It works by taking control of Minecart entities and letting you control them!

Flying a Plane



Planes are crafted using the following recipe:
Plane Recipe
However you can also make Hover Planes which are crafted with this recipe:
Hover Plane Recipe


When made Planes will have randomly generated Stats such as Health, Speed and their Name. These can be edited later on using the upgrade tool.
To upgrade a plane, place the plane in the left slot of an anvil, any upgrades you want in the middle slot and use the bar at the top to rename it.
Upgrades are as following:

Iron BlocksHealth+9
Iron IngotsHealth+1
Redstone BlocksSpeed+9
Redstone DustSpeed+1


Now you are able to fly your plane! Simply place it down with a right click and hop in!

The controls

The controls for the Plane are simple and effective.

MouseDictate the direction to fly the plane
'W'/ForwardsMove the plane forwards
'A'/LeftMove the plane upwards
'S'/RightMove the plane downwards
'D'/BackwardsMove the plane backwards
'Left Shift'Dismount

Safe Exit

It is well known in Minecraft that Minecarts can be used to 'glitch' through walls. However on some server, you may not want this. So, if you turn on safeExit in the config, the plugin will ensure that post-exit you are teleported to the exact location that the plane was at and also block you exiting whilst the car is inside a block. By default safeExit is turned off.


Shops allow you to buy planes for the amount specified in the config. To use Shops you need 'Vault' installed (For the economy support). Planes bought in the shop have random stats and sometimes are great, other times are less so.
To make a shop, write the following on a sign:
Then place a chest above, when the chest is opened. The shop GUI will open.

uPlanes has an extensive API to allow other plugins to interact with and modify planes.
The Javadoc for the API can be found on Jenkins, here.

For use with Maven; the uPlanes repo url is: 'http://repository-storm345dev.forge.cloudbees.com/release/', the group id is: 'net.stormdev', the artifactId is 'uPlanes' and I recommend you build it with the version set to 'LATEST'.
For example:

    You worldborder plugin clearly isn't terribly good as uPlanes can be blocked exactly the same as minecarts. (The plugin probably teleports back inside the border, but bukkit doesnt aupport teleporting entities which are being ridden)

    Please add WorldBorder support. uPlanes can fly trough borders..

    By placing a plane on a rail you will get another one, this is a dupe bug. Please fix.

    uPlanes has nothing to do with any parkour plugins; please do not use this comments section to advertise other unrelated plugins.

    For uPlanes you can use the uPlanesAPI to generate an itemstack to put into chests, if you're using just uCars for cars then you can just add minecarts, but if you have uCarsTrade then it's a little more complex (but totally do-able) and message back asking for how. For an example see gameblade.net's minetheftauto loot chests.

    It would be fun, but not many people would play it.

Do you prefer?
