Elytra are equippable wings which allow the player to fly (or more specifically, glide) in Minecraft. To use an Elytra, you must equip it in your chest slot, climb to a height of at least four blocks, and jump. Flight is controlled by the left / right, up / down keys.
A new Elytra can be crafted from two damaged pairs of Elytra, however the Elytra itself is not currently craftable in survival mode, rather it is one of minecraft’s found items. Elytra may be found in END cities, specifically, they are within item frames aboard END ships.
