After searching I couldn't find anything, with the closest depiction being a pilot.

"___ animals have a different form of locomotion to aquatic or terrestrial animals."

    Can you give an example of a sentence where you'd use the word? – Laurel Sep 29 '18 at 21:43

    "Flying" seems an obvious solution... – Chappo Hasn't Forgotten Monica Sep 30 '18 at 2:26

Volant

(of an animal) able to fly or glide. [Google Dictionary]

A number of animals have evolved aerial locomotion, either by powered flight or by gliding. Flying and gliding animals (volant animals) have evolved separately many times, without any single ancestor. Flight has evolved at least four times, in the insects, pterosaurs, birds, and bats.

  • Can you give a source for your definition? You should also fix the formatting. Answers that don't give proper attribution may be deleted. – Laurel Sep 29 '18 at 22:00

I would say they are flying animals.

Flying birds are by far the most common, but we also have flying mammals. We once had flying reptiles but these became extinct long ago. Flying fish are a family of marine fish that can fly short distances horizontally (see "gliding flight")

"flying" - adj - moving or capable of moving in the air

  • This. 'volant' might be the correct technical term, but, unlike it, in mosts contexts 'flying' will be clear and immediately recognizable. – Italian Philosophers 4 Monica Sep 30 '18 at 1:21
