The Flight Control Platform is the site of a mini-game in The Wind Waker. It is located one square east of Dragon Roost Island. This location is really only a structure made of wood coming out from the ocean, but it is considered an island. On the platform are two human brothers named Obli and Willi who run the Bird-Man Contest. Around the island is a submarine, and if all the monsters inside it are defeated it reveals the Platform Chart. This island is also the location the treasure marked on Treasure Chart #19.

The Contest

The main objective of the Bird-Man Contest is to fly using Link's Deku Leaf from the starting platform to a specific point in the ocean that serves as the finish line. Normally, the distance is so great that Link must have a doubled Magic Meter to even come close to the finish line, but there are some exceptions if he uses the Tingle Tuner. Strategically using the whirlwinds across the ocean and using the direction of the wind to his advantage, Link can win a Piece of Heart. An alternative strategy would be to continue equipping and unequipping the Deku Leaf as Link glides, as it does not waste magic, and pushes Link slightly farther and higher.


One of the Submarines can be found south of the Platform. Defeat the Wizzrobes, Red ChuChus, Green ChuChus and Miniblins to be rewarded with the Platform Chart. The Miniblins keep coming at Link until all of the Wizzrobes are defeated.
