Unless you have cata and buy the Flight Master License you will only be able to use it in Outland at your level. Once you get to Northrend you will need to purchase Cold Weather Flying to fly there.

EDIT: Oh and can't use it indoors, just like any other mount.

Cata = Cataclysm, the expansion that came out last month.

Cata is short for Cataclysm. Where are you trying to mount and it's not letting you?

If you don't have the expansion you can't have purchased the flight master license so you'll be limited to Outlands for flying until you buy Cataclysm and spend the 250 gold to get the Flight Master License
If you haven't actually upgraded to Cata yet, the Flight Master's License won't be available yet. You probably only trained Expert Riding, so at this point you can only fly in Outland.

The License will be a different purchase, but available from the same trainer (same with Cold Weather Flying at 68, if you've upgraded to Wrath of the Lich King and can visit Northrend).

If you don't have your account upgraded to Cataclysm, you can't purchase the Flight Master's License, and you can't fly in Azeroth (Eastern Kingdoms + Kalimdor).

From your character's level, you certainly seem to have at least Burning Crusade, so you can only fly your mount in Outland.

If you have Wrath of the Lich King, you can fly in Northrend as well, if you purchase the Cold Weather Flying training.

All expansions are required before you can upgrade to Cataclysm.

You can purchase all levels of flying now in Org
Thanks for clarifying, I wasn't very clear. I meant Northrend in reference to having Wrath, not as a place to buy the training.

I dont get why it lets me buy it if im not allowed to use it yet!???
If you've upgraded from Wrath to Cata, as soon as you buy the Flight Master's License you should be able to hop on your new wyvern and hit Spacebar to take off, right then and there.

But without Cata, that License shouldn't even be visible, for this exact reason.

Wow + BC xpac ---> Flying allowed in BC
WoW + BC + WotLK ---> Flying allowed in BC + Northrend (with CWF license)
WoW + BC + WotLK + Cata --> Flying allowed in BC + Northrend (w/ CWF) + Cata areas (license needed?) + other Azeroth areas (with Old world Flight license)

It shouldn't have let you buy it. It may be in your spellbook, and glowing yellow, saying "See your Trainer," but you shouldn't be able to actually pay the gold and buy the training until you get upgraded to Cataclysm.

I know it says 58 - but I am a lvl 60.

I just purchased the training and the mount. And I cannot fly anywhere. The icon states that I should be able to fly in Eastern etc. Does not work.

I do not have cata - if that is required than Blizzard should not be allowing me to purchase the mount and training (almost 260G).

If I'm doing something wrong - please let me know!!

Every time I click the icon it says - "You can't do that here"
