The ability allows the user to fly in the air. A maximum speed of flight is not known, but Nathan has been often seen to fly at supersonic speeds, though it is also possible to fly more slowly or to just levitate with the ability. The ability also seems to protect against any ill-effects of flying, such as low temperatures, air pressure and resistance. It is possible to carry others while flying, but this is limited to the strength of the flyer. The individual seems immune to gravity while flying, and therefore cannot be controlled or forced to land by using gravity manipulation. However, Kokone will not be able to fly when she has increased her size using her growth manipulation.
