Aang/Zaheer: Flight and The Thought Chakra
Someone said to me, “Even Aang couldn’t fly like that.” Then I recalled the moment he relinquished his connection to Katara, unlocked the Thought Chakra, and entered the Avatar State under the influence of pure cosmic energy. Aglow with heavenly light, he levitated. We see no evidence of Airbending; he merely floats skyward.
Is this the same flight we see Zaheer attain after having accepted the loss of P’Li, untethered himself from desire, unlocked the Thought Chakra, and entered the void?
As many have theorized, this technique seems to be attainable only when love is lost or otherwise forgone. Aang was prepared to sacrifice his happiness and love for unlimited cosmic power. Shouldn’t it stand that this flow of energy unlocks unaided flight? In the least, it would seem so in here.
Originally I thought this was just some mystic Avatar State nonsense, but if you look there is no Air enshrouding or otherwise lifting Aang into the air. He’s levitating.
This power must be contingent upon the dismissal of worldly desires and successful access to the Thought Chakra and its promise of cosmic energy.

Jinora, come forward. Today we welcome the first airbending master in a generation, and I couldn’t be more proud of my daughter. When the existence of our people was threatened, when the avatar’s life hung in the balance, Jinora never gave up hope. Thanks to her leadership, I see a very bright future for the air nation. Of course there would be no air nation without avatar Korra. She opened the portals and somehow the world began anew for us, and she was even willing to lay down her own life in order to protect ours. There’s no way we can ever repay her for all she’s done, but we can follow her example of service and sacrifice. So while she recuperates, the air nation will reclaim its nomadic roots and roam the earth. But unlike our ancestors, we will serve people of all nations, working wherever there is corruption and discord, to restore balance and peace. Avatar Korra, I vow that we will do everything in our power to follow in your footsteps and bring harmony to the world. Now, let us anoint the master who will help lead us in our new path. Master Jinora.
