The Air Attack is an attack where Yooka spins in the air while jumping, while Laylee flies around him, damaging any enemies that they hit. The ability is learned automatically once the duo learns the Tail Twirl ability in the beginning of the game.
Yooka can use this ability to hit enemies on the land or in the air, like a ground pound or forwards boomerang.
|Attacking||After Yooka jumps, the duo can use this ability to hit enemies that can normally not be hit by the Tailspin. While the Tailspin is a good attack on the land, the Air Attack is a much better attack to use to hit flying enemies.|
|Mobility||Yooka can use the Air Attack to jump across gaps, as the Air Attack hovers the duo for a brief moment, and the duo speeds up as well. However, it's more recommended to use the Glide ability to jump over gaps.|

- If the player jumps and immediately uses Air Attack, the player will propel forward, making this fast for travel and an alternative when out of power for the Reptile Roll. This can be useful for speedruns.
