Just use W,A,S,D keys.

Use Up arrow to "dive" or go down and Vise-Versa.
Usually you already want to take off, so stay in a straight position then press down. Then close those "take off wheels" when you are about to take off.

IMO, best way to start flying is by flying a helicopter. Then when you applied your skill in flying a helicopter, you can also excel in flying a plane.

Try first in flying a Shamal. That's the balanced plane in the game. I don't recommend a Dodo because its too slow.

gta 3 flying is harder that i even treated the dodo as a car, screw those short wings

DEFAULT Controls:
Enter Ė Enter/Leave Vehicle -- (pick-up burglary items)
Arrows Right/Left. Bank Right/Left.
Arrows Up/Down Climb/Dive
A or D Bank Left or Right
W increase throttle (When held also allows plane to climb naturally).
S decrease throttle
E turn Rudder Right
Q turn Rudder Left.
NumPad + raises/lowers Landing Gear.
NumPad 0 or Left Ctrl fire Main Rockets.
Space Bar = Lock on Target.
HUNTER Left Ctrl or NumPad 0 fires Machine Guns.
HUNTER Right Ctrl fires Rockets.
HYDRA Left Alt or Right Ctrl Ė Launch Defensive Measures.
HYDRA: NumPad 8 sets thrusters for Forward Flight
HYDRA NumPad 2 sets thrusters for Hover Flight
OTHER Aircraft: NumPad 2 Look Down
OTHER Aircraft: NumPad 4 Look Left.
OTHER Aircraft: NumPad 8 Look Down
OTHER Aircraft: NumPad 6 Look Right.
VIEWS: - V cycles through Long, Short, Personal, and Panoramic Views.

If you donít hold a key the Aircraft will/may maintain normal level flight.
Donít over control, do use light taps until you get comfortable.

Use of Parachute:
Left Ctrl to open Parachute.
Up Arrow to skydive fast (arms close to body)
Down Arrow to slow skydive (arms away from body)
A/D or Left/Right Arrows to rotate Left/Right
No you canít tumble.

I suggest getting a Generic uSB 12 button Gamepad such as the Logitech Dual Action ™. Not a console game control.

Steal the Shamel (jet) at the Los Santos airport. Practice flying it. Then the Dodo (prop).
You can jump the gate house to get in.

I don't believe in Cheating for playing the game. But, use JUMPJET to get the Hydra to Practice flying it, DON'T SAVE after you do.

I think it is very much easier if you're using the Num 6 and Num 9 for raising and diving.
