As you explore Hyrule, whether it be in the sky, on the ground, or in the depths, you’ll come across utilities known as Zonai Wings, which allow you to soar around and access hard-to-reach places or simply to get down from somewhere high. Here’s how to fly on Zonai Wing gliders in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
How to fly using the Zonai Wing in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Once you’ve found a Zonai Wing, which is a giant metal plate shaped like a bird, you’ll need to drag it onto the nearby rails so that the rails can guide it off the edge and into the air.
To do this, use Link’s Ultrahand ability to select the Zonai Wing, rotate it if needed, and move it onto the rails. Be quick, though, as once it’s on rails, it will start moving by itself and glide away without you on it. As soon as it’s on the rail, jump on it and stand on the circle in the middle to soar around Hyrule from above.

Alternatively, you can attach other Zonai Parts to the Zonai Wing for additional propulsion, such as fans, rockets, or balloons, scrapping the need for the rails. I tried adding rockets, and it was such a fun time; I highly recommend it!
How to control Zonai Wing direction in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
To control which way the Zonai Wing glider moves, simply move Link in the direction you want it to go. For example, stand on one of the wings if you want it to turn left or right.
You can also increase speed or momentum by standing on either the tail end or the nose.
