"Levitation is commonplace, but our ancestors were not content with hovering five feet from the ground. They wanted more. They wanted to fly like birds, but without the inconvenience of growing feathers."
Kennilworthy Whisp[src]

Wingardium Leviosa is a first-year charm used to make objects fly[1]. It can be used by a witch or wizard on themselves, in order to achieve temporary flight, allowing them to hover five feet above the ground[2]. This was done until the first flying broomsticks were manufactured[2].
