Gamer’s favourite PUBG has already released its, the Motor Glider aircraft. It flown in the skies of Erangel and Miramar in the PUBG Labs.

Planes like the C-130 are the major vehicle that transports the players onto the island. These, for an instance (like the C-130) deliver air-drops across the map in classic game modes.

The Motor Glider was introduced in PUBG Labs on December 19th – December 22nd.

Update history

Update- 43 (Season 8 – Update 8.1)

The main perk being that the Airfield, perhaps unsurprisingly, now has a chance to spawn the Motor Glider!

  • This is the only place you can find it on Sanhok (Remastered).
  • So, grab a gas can and take it to the skies!

Update- 38 (Season 6 – Update 6.1)

This Motor Glider is available on Erangel and Miramar.

10 Motor Gliders will spawn across the map each game, across 40 potential locations.


Motor Glider has two seats:

  • One for pilot – one for passenger who can shoot and use any weapon from the backseat.

  • To takeoff, you must gain the necessary speed of 65 km/h then pitch up with the S key.

You’ll start to take off automatically once you hit 70 km/h.

Motor Glider’s fuel consumption rate is tied to the engine speed. So, the more throttle you apply, the faster you will run out of gas.

There’s no maximum altitude you can reach, the sky is the limit! But engine will start losing power the higher the altitude you are at.


  • Use W/S keys to control the pitch and A/D to control the roll of the aircraft.
  • Adjust the throttle by holding Left Shift and Left Ctrl keys.
  • Hold Space bar when on the ground to engage handbrake.

Datamined once

The above vehicle was leaked in the game files on December 11th, 2019 from data mined files.

The original motor glider developed in PUBG labs

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds gets its first player-controlled aircraft. It is the Motor Glider, which is available for test flights at the PUBG Labs server.

The Motor Glider (that’s it above) seats two. It as of now doesn’t have any armaments. The players can still drop throwables (molotovs are most useful). And also, fire from above as similar to the acts performed with other vehicles.

  • While the engine may be destroyed, it can still glide to a landing with indestructible landing gear.
    • The wings take damage, but at a lesser rate than the body.
It will be spawned randomly around the map, but it has no service ceiling. As a result, it will lose power the higher you go with it. It also has a limited fuel supply.

The Motor Glider test took place on the Erangel and Miramar maps. Players on the PC version of PUBG will find the test in a banner on the public match menu of their main screen.

The C-130 is used to paradrop players onto the map with a parachute.

Trivia accomplishment

Earlier in the Alpha – Closed Beta, the C-130 was badly designed in the interior. And, it couldn’t even fit 100 players (that’s why they had 2 planes during that period).

As a result of this, only half of the plane was being used. So, they further extended it in the inside to fit more.

Playerunknown Battlegrounds.
An insight from the game. |

C-130’s were introduced into the game because they would frequently fly over the PUBG offices in Seoul.

Wow! Isn’t this very unexpectedly interesting?

This type of C-130 has 2 variants.

An original C-130 aircraft

The Lockheed C-130 Hercules is an American four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft. It has been designed and built originally by Lockheed.

The aircraft is exceptionally capable of using unprepared runways for takeoffs and landings. However, the C-130 was originally designed as a troop, medevac, and cargo transport aircraft.

The Pillar Scout Helicopter is an AI driven aircraft vehicle in BATTLEGROUNDS.


This- Pillar Scout Helicopter spawns only in Haven. The helicopter roams in the skies of Haven. And, it helps in detecting players hiding in open spaces.

A spotlight is shone directly on detected players and their position is relayed directly to Pillar Tactical.

Tip for you: Pillar Tactical then move out towards the highlighted players to launch their assault.

Real Scout Helicopter

Scout, states a description of a class of military aircraft. This came into use shortly before the First World War. And, it was initially referred to a fast (for its time), light (usually single-seated) unarmed reconnaissance aircraft.

PUBG tips
War age Scout aircraft. |

 “Scout” types were generally adaptations of pre-war racing aircraft. Although, at least one (the Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.2) was especially and originally designed for the role.

Scout’s dimensions are close to traditional two-seat helicopters. Inspite of this it can easily carry three people with luggage.

PUBG tips

  • The appearance of the helicopter borrows from an articulate automotive design. This makes it more understandable and attractive to amateur pilots.

The engine uses standard A-95 gasoline which allows refueling at regular gas stations. This effectively removes any restrictions on the Scout’s flying range.
