It's fun, fast, and great for getting from one point to another, however by default flying is disabled on the Minecraft server and it is required to enable it via the server settings. If not enabled, you can experience issues like being kicked off the server due to an error. In this guide, we will show you how this can be enabled on Your Minecraft server in a matter of minutes!
The first step is to go to Scalacube.com and log in to your account.
Click on "Servers" and then click on "Manage server"
Click "Manage" again.
Locate "Settings" on the left tab and enter it.
Find "server.properties" and click on "Change".
Scroll down and find the setting that says "allow-flight".
Change "allow-flight=false" to "allow-flight=true" and click "Save.
Once this is done, click "Back".
Click on "Manage".
Click "Reboot" to restart your server so the new changes will take effect.
Once this process is done, go ahead and enter your server and you can see that you will no longer experience issues with flying in any shape or form.
If you are still experiencing issues with being kicked due to flying, go back into the server settings and make sure that the setting was changed from "false" to "true" and that the change was saved and the server restarted after.
Congratulations! You now know How to Allow Flight on Your Minecraft Server.
