    I mean Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, and maybe Skyquake if he's still functioning. That's at least three to four flying Cons. Plus, there's those flight Eradicons as well.

    I mean there's no rule on why there aren't flying Autobots. If there's a new Autobot recruit for Team Prime, I hope it's a flying Autobot.

    To be honest I liked the fact that flying autobots was a rare thing in Animated so that when we did get them we knew they were something special.
    Plus it gives the 'cons that edge which makes it more dramatic when the 'Bots do best them.

    I didn´t. It made no sense, because that would mean the Cons had aerial superiority and yet lost the Great War.

    I don't doubt we will see at least one flying Autobot in the series. I'd like to see a young and heavily armed Jetfire or Skydive/Air Raid.

    It's inevitable that there will eventually be one, if not at least a couple. Unlike Animated, there isn't any reasons, yet, for there not to be any flying Autobots. Thinking about what Starscream was saying to Knockout, it seems that it's more of a personal choice, than a predetermined ability that only certain classes of bots have.

    Personally, I would love to see Jetfire introduced at some point, have him be another ex-Wrecker, and have his design for the most part be like G1, but with his alt-mode looking more like an SR-71 (with that, and maybe the addition of a cane/walking stick be the only movie influences).

    We're certainly going to get a flying Autobot. Even if it means Prime strapping some kind of jetpack on himself so he can go rip off Megatron's face while flying over Nevada.

    Yes thats the whole point, even though they had a greater war machine the bots won out in the end.

    Its about those fighting for a good cause winning the fight against insurmountable odds

    I'd love to see what a PRIME Powerglide would look like

    In Animated the Decepticons could fly because they were already a group before the war.

    But in Prime verse there's military Autobots just like there's Decepticons, so it would be really, odd if not dumb that flying Autobots don't exist.

    I can imagine them bringing in someone like Skydive or Air Raid, but have them turn out like Wheeljack, only popping up in a couple episodes per season and not joining the main cast permanently.

    How is Starscream supposed to run away if some flying Autobot can chase him? :) 

    I'm sure we'll get a flying bot before this show is over. I'll be curious to see if the Jetfire/Skyfire swapping sides story is done again. I'd like to see him start as a bot and go over to the cons this time.

    We can get a flying Autobot just as long as the Autobots look down on flying Autobots like Starscream looks down on Decepticons with a car mode.

    To be honest I have to agree that if the Autobots have a warrior class then there must be Autobot fliers to keep the Autobots from getting totally pounded by Decepticon air superiority.
