A few days ago the Elytra wings were introduced in a new snapshot of the PC version (v1.9) of Minecraft. The Elytra wings can be put in an armor slot and once worn they can be used for hang gliding.
The Elytra PE mod makes it possible for you to add similar wings to your character in-game. They are by no means at the same quality level as the PC version but they can definitely give you a taste of what they might be like if Minecraft PE gets the same feature implemented in the future.
How to get the wings and what can they do?
The first and easiest option is to be in creative mode and find them in your creative inventory.
The second option is to get the Too Many Items mod and use its items inventory to find the wings. The advantage is that it won’t matter whether you are in creative or survival mode to be able to get them.

They are primarily used for hang gliding. This means you can’t fly with them, only glide downwards.
