** In ''The Chamber of Secrets'', you can do essentially the same but with the broom. Allows you to fly around the Hogwarts grounds, but you can't land anywhere and it's not really useful for anything. It's also not available until you've practically beaten the game.

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' also features a flight school, but none of the protagonists is required to take lessons there in order to fly whatever they want, wherever they want. Flight lessons are merely the easiest way to quickly level up the flight skill. If you don't mind the increased sway of your vehicle, you can jump into any aircraft you find at any time and explore the whole map without any restrictions aside from the no-fly zone above Fort Zancudo. In fact, small helicopters are far and away the easiest and most convenient way to [[GottaCatchThemAll collect most of the letter scraps and starship parts]]; some even can't be accessed any other way. All this freedom is kept from being game-breaking by how difficult it is to deploy any onboard weapons that might come with a fighter jet or a gunship, and missions don't usually allow for free vehicle choice anyway, which means aircraft are mostly restricted to free-roam mode.

* ''VideoGame/FarCry4'' one-ups its predecessor with the Buzzer, a primitive but highly capable mini-chopper. This one really is a GameBreaker because its sole limitation is its flight ceiling, and even that's so generous it very rarely keeps players from reaching crucial locations. Apart from that, the Buzzer doesn't need fuel, is faster than any other vehicle in the game, is surprisingly resilient to gunfire and other damages, can be repaired in seconds without having to lug around tools, is so small it can land on a postcard, and to top it all off, one can shoot handguns while flying it (and one available handgun is [[DeathFromAbove a freaking grenade launcher]]). Even better, it becomes available for free [[DiscOneNuke barely one hour into the game]]. If you're willing to forego stealth in favor of cheesing the hell out of the Buzzer, much of the game becomes trivial, partly because of the sheer destructive power of the Buzzer-grenade-launcher combo, partly because the thing makes the [[DungeonBypass almost immediate acquisition]] of many powerful weapons so ridiculously easy.

** There is a true flight mechanic in ''[=OmegaRuby=] and [=AlphaSapphire=]'' in which you ride Latias or Latios at a high altitude, referred to in-game as "Soaring" to avoid confusion with the aforementioned "Flying" mechanic. It uses invisible walls to prevent the player character from wandering too far, and while there are wild Pokémon encounters, there is very little to do actually in the air, requiring landing somewhere to actually accomplish tasks. Soaring does have its uses though, as only from high altitudes can you find uncharted islands that you cannot see otherwise.

* ''VideoGame/DragonBallZBudokaiTenkaichi'' takes flight for granted in the spirit of the show. The first game gives it to everyone, its sequel however takes account into who is actually allowed to fly and characters that don't have such power in the show can only jump very high only to plummet to the ground. The third game takes an inbetween approach, non-flying characters will jump into the air and fall slowly, they can be also given the power in custom matches.

* Several champions in ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}}'' have some sort of flight capabilities. Naturally, flight has its limitations to prevent it from being overpowered.
** Drogoz uses a jetpack to launch himself into the air and fly while he [[FlyingFirepower rains down death from above]] with his rocket launcher. Once his jetpack runs out of fuel, he must land for it to recharge.
** Evie can take to the skies on her ice staff, using it like a FlyingBroomstick. In addition to her [[TeleportSpam Blink]], this makes her an extremely mobile flank champion.
** Androxus can FlashStep up to three times in any direction, including upwards. He can also slow his descent in the air with the jump button. Clever players have realized that he can achieve semi-flight by careful use of his flash steps and slowing his descent.
** Willo is a fairy who normally hovers over the ground, but her [[LimitBreak ultimate]] gives her true flight, allowing her to freely soar in any direction while also giving her unlimited ammo for the duration.

** Later updates introduce the Elytra, an item that equips to the chest slot. With these, players can glide in survival mode. If they craft enough fireworks, these can be used to provide propulsion and actual flight. The limitations: 1)obviously, a player can only carry a certain amount of fireworks, limiting flight time; 2) flying below level 0 will kill the player (generally impossible in survival mode); 3) the flight speed generally causes injury upon landing, though an experienced player can avoid this; 4)flying too far in any direction but down will eventually overload your computer, especially with higher graphics settings.
