Flying was also the name of an unrelated magazine first published in February 1912 by the Flying Association, 297, Madison Ave., New York City as the "Official Organ of the Aero Club of America", measuring 30 cm. by 22 cm. and illustrated in black and white, including extensive advertising. Its volumes ran from February each year to the January issue of the following year. It was absorbed by the weekly magazine Aerial Age in 1922 after completion of the tenth volume, Feb. 1921–Jan. 1922.[4]

It included articles on a variety of subjects including manufacturers such as Glen Curtiss and Santos-Dumont, news items for the Aero Club of America and matters of military and naval defense concerning World War I.

Flying had an unusual position regarding copyright, announcing in their banner that "The object of FLYING being principally to widen the circle of interest, the contents are not copyrighted. Publications may reproduce articles and cuts. It is only requested that credit be given to FLYING."
