How do I solve getting chocobo to fly?
I cannot get my chocobo to fly. It is at gold level but after feeding it a dead pepper in a forest it still will not fly. dwinsor - 4 years ago

This appears to be a question related to FF14 (FFXIV) and would have been better asked on that game's pages.
You need to attune with all the aether currents in each zone in order to be able to fly in that zone. The black chocobo is not an exception to that requirement. This is done in two different ways, either physically locating the current and clicking on it to attune (like you would attuning to an aetheryte), or unlocking it automatically by completing certain sidequests and main scenario quests that feature the aether current as a quest reward. The former appear as a greenish white swirling ball of energy in various places around the zone.
These do not show up on the mini map or main map. You can narrow down their location by opening your Key Items list and using the Aether Compass that was given to you when you gained the Black Chocobo. The aether compass will tell you the direction of the nearest aether current and a rough distance to it based on yalms. Quest currents are a little trickier although a quest that unlocks a current will have the '+' symbol on it's icon.
