Flying Broom is one of the trusted mounts in Hogwarts Legacy that can help you cover some distance quickly and reach areas where you couldn’t before. But before you get your hands on one, you must unlock flying by finishing the main quest Jackdraw’s Rest.
However, getting a Hogwarts Legacy flying broom can take some time, leaving players wondering when they will be able to fly across Hogwarts and Hogsmeade.
Thankfully, we are here to explain how players can get a flying broom in Hogwarts Legacy and truly embrace the spirit of a witch/wizard and navigate the countryside from the air.
Hogwarts Legacy how to unlock flying
Players in Hogwarts Legacy must complete the Flying Class quest to get the flying broom. In this quest, players learn some basics about the flying broom, and they fly over open ground. However, for the flying class questline, players must be at level 6.
Firstly, players need to head to the flying class. There Madam Kogawa will teach players the following basics:
- For lateral movement, use the W, A, S, and D keys. Spacebar can be used to ascend, and the Ctrl key to descend.
- Press the shift key to make your character move fast. For the speed burst toggle, pass through the rings.
After these basics, complete the tasks assigned to you. Once you have completed the tasks, a student will ask you to accompany them for a flight tour. Don’t overthink and do as he says.
Once you return to the ground, the quest will be completed, and you will have unlocked flying in Hogwarts Legacy.
How to get a broom
Players must visit the Spintwitches Sporting Needs shop to buy the flying broom. Once you are in Hogsmeade, look for the shop on your map and set the quest tracker. It should lead you directly to the shop where you can buy the broom.
Ember Dash broom is the first broom that becomes available to the players. This broom requires 600 coins. Therefore, if you have 600 coins, press X on the controller, and you will get the broom.
Remember your lessons from the flying class and you will be flying around Hogwarts in no time.

Hogwarts Legacy broom upgrades
While you are at the shop at Spintwitches Sporting Needs you will also get an offer from Mr. Weekes about the possible Broom Upgrades.
But before you head on to buying these upgrades, there is a prerequisite that you need to complete. For that, you need to complete a time trial named Flight Test.
Completing the Flight Test is rather an easy job as you just have to fly through the course and collect as many yellow bubbles and white rings as you can. To pass this time trial, you need to beat Imelda’s time and collect most of the checkpoints.
After completing the Flight Test, you need to head back to the shop. The next thing is to speak to Albie and the upgrades to the broom will be unlocked. There is a total of 3 Broom Upgrades in Hogwarts Legacy with the first one costing around 1000 Galleon.
Meanwhile, the second and third ones cost around 4000 and 7500 Galleons but unlocking them also requires completing another time trial. These time trials will be unlocked as you progress through the main storyline.
An Albie’s Owl popup post will appear once you complete those prerequisite time trials. After purchasing these upgrades, your broom will receive an increase in acceleration and speed.
