Flight

Flight was the quality of machines and vehicles which could get about in the air without touching the ground. It was shared by helicopters, (PROSE: Kursaal) aeroplanes (TV: The Magician's Apprentice) and, on occasions, the Doctor's TARDIS. (TV: The Parting of the Ways, The Runaway Bride)

For an organic being, the equivalent ability, both being described with the verb "to fly", was called flying (TV: The Return of Doctor Mysterio, City of Death) or levitation. (COMIC: Levitation)

The word "polyot" meant "flight" in Russian, hence the name of the Polyot-one rocket-ship. (PROSE: The Shoreditch Incident)

The early Dalek War Machine model of casing was incapable of flight. (COMIC: Defender of the Daleks) As this severely limited the early Dalek Empire's efforts to traverse rough terrain on other planets, the Daleks initially compensated for this weakness with hoverbouts before they managed to invent casings with the capacity for independent flight. (PROSE: The Astounding Untold History of the Greatest Enemies of the Universe)

Most factions of Cybermen were unable to fly, not even the highly advanced Cyberiad models. (TV: Nightmare in Silver) The Cybermen built by Missy however, externally identical to their Cyberiad counterparts, did possess flight capabilities. (TV: Death in Heaven) The Cybermen of the Mondasian colony ship were also capable of flight, even among the early CyberMondan models, and could reach speeds sufficient to counter time dilation. (TV: The Doctor Falls) Cyber-Warriors were also capable of flight. (WC: 14683 UNIT Field Log) Cyberdrones could also fly. (TV: Ascension of the Cybermen)

The Mechonoids were capable of flight. (WC: Planet of the Mechonoids)
