The land of Perfect World is vast and traveling is inevitable. There are specific areas are completely off-limits if you don't have a flying mount, and places that you can't simply teleport to. Winged Elves have the ability to fly from level 1, but other races can also obtain aerogear to fly. Aerogear is race-specific.
Players will be given their first aerogear in the Celestial Vale. Additional aerogear can be obtained from Token Packs, bought from the Boutique or Event Boutique, and obtained from various events, promos or contests.

Permanent Flight Speed Upgrade
The speed you fly is equal to your base flying speed (5.0 m/sec for all classes) plus the speed of your aerogear in its current mode. Most aerogear starts with two speeds - a normal speed and a hasted speed. Depending on what aerogear you have, these two speeds may be increased through the use of Boutique items or other items. The items required depends on your flyer.
All sealed flyers start out as +1.0m/s flying speed and will start with the word "Sealed" in their name. They are all able to be unsealed and be upgraded to +3.3m/s with the use of a Wishful Wing Token. Wishful Wing Token is an item that drops from various packs, and may also be bought from other players.
Flyers Below +3.0m/s for Humans, Winged Elf, and Untamed
- Cost: 10 Silver
- Effect: increase your aerogear's speed bonus by +0.5 m/s.
It requires multiple widgets to upgrade aerogear, and a single aerogear may be upgraded multiple times, to a maximum of +3.0 m/s normal flight speed. However, it will require more widgets the higher it is upgraded (80 vs 60). Some aerogear cannot be upgraded, as they already have maximum flight speed.
Every upgrade increases flight speed by .50 so to max it, you would need to go through all four upgrades.
- 1st upgrade 1.50/3.50 - 20 widgets
- 2nd upgrade 2.00/4.00 - 60 widgets
- 3rd upgrade 2.50/4.50 - 80 widgets
- 4th upgrade 3.00/5.00 - 80 widgets
Wind widgets are 10 silver each in the Boutique, or 90 silver for a 10 pack.
So given this information, the cost of upgrades would be:
- 1st upgrade - 1 gold 80 silver
- 2nd upgrade - 5 gold 40 silver
- 3rd upgrade - 7 gold 20sliver
- 4th upgrade (Final) - 7 gold 20 silver
- Total upgrade cost is 21.60 gold + the cost of the mount = 26.60 gold
Flyers below +3.0m/s for Tideborn, Earthguard, and Nightshade
The flyers for Tideborn, Earthguard, and Nightshade can be upgraded directly to 3.0 with the use of Wings of Luminescence at the Aerogear Forge Med.
Wings of Luminescence can be acquired through the Boutique. However, if the flyer was bought with Event Gold in the Event Boutique, the Wings of Luminescence must also be bought with Event Gold.
It takes 50 Wings of Luminescence to upgrade to 3.0m/s no matter the speed, but the number of Wings of Luminescence required may vary if the flyer is bought with Event gold.
Flyers at 3.0m/s or 3.2m/s flying speed
Flyers can be upgraded further up to 3.3 with the use of the Boutique items Wings of Luminescence and Featherswept Wings. Wings of Luminescence are needed to make 3.0m/s flyers upgradeable to 3.3m/s and don't actually increase the flyer's speed.
Flyers that have been upgraded from a lower speed to 3.0m/s using Wings of Luminescence will not need to use Wings of Luminescence again.
It takes 50 Wings of Luminescence, but amount of Wings of Luminescence may vary if the flyer is bought with Event gold. If the flyer is bought with event gold, the Wings of Luminescence also needs to be bought with event gold.
Featherswept Wings are used to upgrade to 3.3m/s. The amount required depends on your flyer:
- Event gold flyers at 3.0m/s needs 30 Featherswept Wings.
- Flyers at 3.0m/s needs 15 Featherswept Wings.
- Flyers at 3.2m/s needs 5 Featherswept Wings.
Flyers at 3.3m/s and above
Flyers at 3.3m/s or above have the option to be enhanced. Each enhancement permanently increases the normal and haste flying speed by 0.1m/s. You can enhance a 3.3m/s flyer a maximum of 2 times. Enhancement requires Fuhsi Pearls which can be obtained from Faction Trials and through the Boutique.
- 1st upgrade 3.40m/s - 80 Fuhsi Pearl
- 2nd upgrade 3.50m/s - 120 Fuhsi Pearls
You can enhance the flyer at Aerocraft Dealer NPC.

Temporary Flight Speed Boosts
The 3 items Possession: Finch Feather, Falcon Feather, and Phoenix Feather are items that increase your normal and acceleration speed by +1.0m/s. To use the item, it needs to be dragged onto the character's cape.
- Finch Feather lasts 2 hours and requires grade 13 Robe.
- Falcon Feather lasts 24 hours and requires grade 14 Robe.

All 3 items can be crafted in Neverfall in the Western Steppes at the NPC Royal Knight Hector.
While in flight, you can use the Accelerate command to fly faster. This has a separate meter that drains with use, and can only be refilled with Chi from Chi Stones or using Mirage Celestones. The Acceleration can be canceled by pressing the Accelerate command again, but will also cancel when the meter has been completely drained or when you land. Acceleration does not stop if you're not moving but still flying. The speed increase varies depending on the aerogear you are using.
Natural Elven Wings cannot use the acceleration feature.
The Genie skill Wind Force can be used to give you a temporary increase in your flight speed.
There are a few skills that can increase your flight speed such as the psychic skill Tradewinds. The increase and duration depend on the psychic's level of Tradewinds and the use of Glyphs for the skill. Unless a skill states that it increases your flight speed, it will only affect how fast you move on the ground. For example, the venomancer skill Summer Sprint does not make you fly faster.
