Upgrades are consumable items that each boost a specific stat on your plane. All upgrades applied are unique to that plane, and are reduced by half if that plane crashes. Upgrades are obtained from particular higher-level bosses and enemies.

There is a cap to how many upgrades you can use on a given stat - (see Elements for elemental upgrade caps and the various Classes for non-elemental upgrade caps).
