"Flight" is an inexpensive Item Power belonging to Sorcery, and functions on Heroes' equipment exactly as per the Flight spell. It may be added to Jewelry via Enchant Item or Create Artifact, but will seldom otherwise turn up, since only one pre-fab item has this Power.

The enchantment will dissipate immediately if the Hero ever removes or loses the item. While worn, however, it cannot be dispelled— a serious, possibly life-saving, advantage over the spell that justifies the additional Cost of enchantment.
"Flight" is cheap and has a powerful effect. Sorcery boasts several Item Powers recommending it as the strongest overall choice to complement the Artificer / Runemaster combination, and "Flight" is one of them.
The stronger the hero, the more impetus there is to get him quickly from battle to battle. Flight compresses the time between battles (netting Exp gains, Treasure, and other spoils), as several other powers from different realms of magic do, but at the same time it gives the hero an undeniable edge in combat.
Since Item Powers' enchantments are unbreakable, "Flight" preempts continual recasting of the Flight spell after getting hit with Disenchant Area. It also prevents the hero from being drowned by disenchantment. It does this while only costing 1.6 times the base price of Flight and being available from the first turn of play to a qualifying Artificer.
Jewelry is expensive to stat up, and this is one of the cheapest Powers available on the Misc slot. It is therefore often worthwhile to craft a miscellaneous accessory bearing only "Flight" while you try to assemble the skill and resources needed to craft a more powerful piece of jewelry (on which "Flight" should almost certainly remain present).

Of the pre-defined Items, only one, the Ring of Dasmiff, bestows "Flight". It requires the wizard possess 3 Life Books in order to turn up randomly in loot or be awarded in The Gift, a random event. Otherwise, the only means of acquiring it is from a Merchant, a random petitioner.
