Flight Rising's world contains eleven different elemental flights.
Each flight has its own god and land. Upon creation of an account, the player will have to choose a flight. As of October 21, 2013, players can now change their flight. The first change is free, but each change after that costs 1500 Gems. Flight changes also have a six-month cooldown, so choose carefully!
Each flight has its own forum that is accessible only to said flight and the administrators.
Depending on what flight a player chooses, their userpage background and nest will change to the chosen flight. All dragons born in the user's nest will be of that flight's element and share its eye color, as well as Coliseum battle strengths and weaknesses. Dragon element/eye color is determined at birth, based on the element of the nest that the dragon is hatched from. Changing flights will change the lair look/feel and the nests. Hatchlings hatched afterward will be of the new element. Users' current dragons and progenitors will retain the same element and eye color that they first had.
The Eleven FlightsEdit

The wind dragons of the Windswept Plateau are explorers. They prefer to be joyful and care-free, like the gentle and playful breezes that whisk them to new lands.

In that spirit, they are eager to become a small part of every community they encounter before they eventually and inevitably leave, following the currents in pursuit of a new adventure. Maps, compasses, and feathers are their favored treasures.
The eyes of wind dragons are lime green.
One of the most notable flight traits is eye color. Depending on what flight a clan belongs to, all of their hatchlings will have specific eye colors. The only way to get dragons of an element different than your account is by buying from other players or hatching Unhatched Eggs. On most breeds the iris is the only part of the eye that shows but, as seen on some breeds, the sclera is also colored to mach the flight and not white like in humans. Below is a Spiral hatchling clearing displaying both iris and sclera coloration for each flight.
On June 8th 2018, an update brought about eye type variants. Each flight has different eye tints and styles that can appear randomly when a dragon is hatched. Eye types are not inheritable like genes are. The breedable or natural eye types are - Common, Uncommon, Unusual, Rare, Faceted, Multi-Gaze, and Primal. Unnatural eye types, like Glowing, are bought and applied to a dragon.
- There have been many user discussions about a 12th flight.
- Several users have expressed a desire to be flightless.
- Earth is famously known as always being the smallest flight, while Fire and Water tend to keep very close to each other in terms of members.
