The Fortnite plane is a new vehicle type, introduced as part of Season 7.

The X-4 Stormwing Plane is the game's first aerial vehicle, it allows up and four other players to fly over the map, perform stunts and more - as long as you know the plane controls and of course, plane locations.

If you're just getting started, our Fortnite Battle Royale tips and tricks can provide some helpful hints.

Fortnite plane locations

Fortnite's plane, the X-4 Stormwing, spawns in the same way as other vehicles do - across the map in specific spots, but only so many at a time.

Possible Fortnite plane locations include:

More specifically, these are:

Frosty Flights, a named location in the south-west of the map:

West of Dusty Divot, on the mountain top:

North of Pleasant Park, on top of the mountain:

West of Lonely Lodge is an airstrip on a hill:

South-east of Pleasant Park and between the two mountains is an airstrip:

South of Lonely Lodge is a large derelict manor house. Head into the basement to find a disco room. Smash the left-most speakers to reveal a secret cave with a plane inside:

What this all means is there's no guarantee of finding plane locations, but it is only possible it will spawn where noted above. More plane locations might be added over time, especially as the map updates, so be sure to keep an eye out!

Other things you should know about the X-4 Stormwing:

  • There's a mounted machine gun, which overheats if used for too long. Short bursts are recommended!
  • When you leave the plane, you'll begin to dive automatically.
  • If the plane gets destroyed, you won't die - you are simply ejected.
  • Clashing into another plane doesn't result an explosion right away either - most likely you'll just bounce off one another!
