To fly, just press B while riding a Monstie that has the Flying Rider Action. The first one you'll get is Ratha, though there are other Monsters in the game that can fly. We won't spoil them here, but make sure to check a Monstie's Rider Actions before adding them to your party. To land, find a clear area and press B again.

That's how to fly in Monster Hunter Stories 2. For more on the game be sure to check out our guide on getting a Palamute. Elsewhere there's our look at farming Vital Essence.
