Name in other languages
Wilbur is a character in Animal Crossing: New Horizons who works at the Airport. He flies the plane to other people's islands, as well as to the mystery tours (which require Nook Mile Tickets) and Harv's Island. Notably, he uses the phonetic alphabet when speaking—with the exception of "whiskey" for "W," replaced with "whisker." His name, along with Orville's, is likely a reference to the Wright brothers, the inventors of the airplane.
After the player lands on a random Mystery Island upon using a Nook Miles Ticket, Wilbur waits at the dock until the player is ready to head home or needs tools. The following tools he can give are: Flimsy Axe, Flimsy Shovel, Flimsy Fishing Rod, and Flimsy Net for 100 Nook Miles each. If the player gets knocked out after being attacked by a Tarantula, Scorpion, or Wasp if they got stung once, Wilbur will take the player back to the dock and as soon they recover, he will cancel the red alert that he sends a word to Orville and then lets the player continue exploring afterwards.
Since the 1.2.0 April Free Update, Wilbur will allow the player to mail or sell items when on Harv's Island on or after June 1, 2020.
