Artwork of Wilbur from Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Wilbur is a special character who debuted in Animal Crossing: New Horizons who works at the Airport. His name, along with Orville, are likely referencing the Wright Brothers, the inventors of airplanes. Wilbur flies the plane to other people's islands, as well as to the mystery tours (which require Nook Mile Tickets). Notably, he uses the phonetic alphabet when speaking—with the exception of "whiskey" for "W", replaced with "whisker" due to ESRB's alcohol reference content descriptor.
After the player lands on a random island after 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 or Scorpion, 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.
He does the same thing when the player chooses to visit Harv's Island, but during the month of June of Wedding Season, he has options of letting the player mail or sell things and can make arrangements the following next day.
