You can obtain your first broomstick by completing the first Flying lesson with Professor Kogawa and purchasing one from Spintwitches in Hogsmeade. You should already get an overview of how to use it during the class, but here are the controls you need to know to be a master at flying:

Flight SpeedHold R2 / Press L3Hold RB / Press LSShift

Do note that your Speed Burst gauge will quickly deplete if you fly too high. You can negate this effect by staying close to the ground, which will keep the meter full or help it recover faster. However, you will have to deal with numerous obstacles and enemies in your way.

Although Hogwarts Legacy lets you freely explore the world, there are some places where you cannot take flight. These locations include some parts of Hogwarts Castle, Hogsmeade, and dungeons. The game will also inform you through an icon near the mini-map whenever you enter areas where flying is banned.

If you feel that your broom is less than satisfactory, you can upgrade it by talking to Albie Weekes and completing various challenges. He will ask you to speak to a Slytherin student, Imelda Reyes, who you must beat in a race. You can receive three upgrades in total, but you will need to pay some Galleons to get them.

Here is how much you need to spend:

  • Upgrade 1: 1,000 Galleons
  • Upgrade 2: 4,000 Galleons
  • Upgrade 3: 7,500 Galleons
