Okay, so. this run is about 80% RNG. between the cactus and the pirahna plant behind it, you get screwed out of this achievement 50x before you get it.

Got it just flying, gotta time that arc of your flight so that you go over the Pokey.

I still have no clue how to time the flight perfectly like this

try flying horizontally at the top of the screen, you need at alternate right and left with the correct timing. after the third lotus start gaining altitude until you're above the screen, you'll get past pokeys. no rng with the right strat.

Did it from start to finish. When you pass the pokey, you need to go below the piranha plant and then above the chuck. Challenging but nice.

In case anyone misunderstands how flying works like I did: You don't need to alternate left/right on the dpad. You only need to periodically tap left, no need to touch right at all.

Fun achievement. There are hidden pipes at the top of the screen that you cannot see. I kept hitting those at first. My advice - after the 3rd fireplant, fly up high as you can until you pass the pokeys, then lower yourself back on screen.

Not to press right while flying it's a great tip, really helped me. The other one that can be helpful: when you get to the spikey tower part with the flying pirana, go as high as you can, there is enough time to go bellow the next pipe in the air later

depois que vi esse tanto de gente rodando e chegando no final sem conseguir terminar voando efetivamente, eu vi que era s passar por baixo da piranha plant, deu tudo certinho pra mim. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1237319307

Holy crap, that was super hard to do

Here is how I did it: Through the challenge indicator I noticed that the challenge starts whenever you go into the air before the first ?-block and it even restarts if you go back there regardless of what you did in that level beyond the ?-block. That's why I went with Yoshi to the part where there is this wall of Pokeys and after that the jumping Piranha Plant that you need to elevate over. These are the two biggest obstacles and the rest is fairly easy imo. Eat the upper most Pokey with Yoshi and also get rid of the Piranha Plant. Return to the beginning of the level without Yoshi and then start flying and gliding through the level. Even if the time counter should be low, there's still ample amount of time to do it, because Mario flies pretty quick.
