Used to start the quests Learning to Fly (A) / http://www.wowdb.com/quests/11498-learning-to-fly (H)
In The Burning Crusade expansion, players were able to fly on their own mounts for the first time in the game. Through the years since then, it became apparent that it had been a controversial feature. Blizzard eventually admitted that it wished it had not introduced flying mounts, but will not remove the feature due to it being far too late to do anything about it. Instead, the company has reintroduced no-flying zones - most recently Isle of Thunder and Timeless Isle.
