How do I get my expert riding?

Post Limit:
I just got to 60 and I can get my expert riding and my flying mount license. It said to go to my trainer, but it didnt work. I went to a riding training in Brill, but I cant train for anything. What do i do?Do I need my flight license before I can get my expert riding??
You have to go to a particular trainer--the flying trainer. You can head to Orgrimmar for this; the flight trainer is by the flight master.

Note that you'll need Burning Crusade on your account to buy Expert Riding (flying), and Cataclysm to get the Flight Master's License. With only Expert Flying, you can only fly in Outland. The Flight Master's License lets you fly in Kalimdor/Eastern Kingdoms.
Awesome thanks. Once Im trained for it, how do I actually get the mount?
You can buy Wyvern mounts in Thrallmar (the first town you'll go to in Outland) and it's possible that you can buy them by the flight trainer in Orgrimmar but I'm not sure.

Ya, you can. There's a mount vendor there now too. :)
I dont mean to sound like a retard, but how do I get to the outland?
Use the portal to Blasted Lands in any capital city. :) If you are unsure of where those are, ask a city guard for the mage trainer. The portal should be in the area that the mage trainers are located.

From the Blasted Lands, go straight ahead through that scary, ominous portal you see. :O Ta-da! You'll be in Outland, and put to work straightaway with quests.

where in Orgimmar?
Next to the flight master. It's on the central cliff; you'll have to take an elevator to get there ironically enough.
You need the Burning Crusade expansion to go to Outland and also to learn flying.
Well, if she's playing a lovely sin'dorei I'm sure she has Burning Crusade. But yes, to go to Outland and fly, one needs Burning Crusade on their account. :)

And yes, the mount vendor should be next to the flight trainer somewhere.

Make a new thread instead of hijacking someone else's topic next time. And don't spam.

Go to the flightpath in Stormwind. The dwarves there will sell you a gryphon and the appropriate flying training.
I wouldn't call that hijacking... this is a thread about finding trainers for expert riding (flying). And the double post looks like what I would do in a fat-fingered moment.

Kyleprimeau... You have BC expansion, right? Do the same as advice for the OP: Go through the Dark Portal in Blasted Lands. You will emerge from the portal into BC content. There will be a flight node off to your left about 100 yards. Take the griffon to Honor Hold. The flight trainer AND the mount seller are in the fight shed, about 10 yards away from where you land at the Honor Hold flight node.
