About

“Where Did You Learn to Fly?” is a memorable quote uttered by the computer guide character Skylar from the 1993 Atari Jaguar 3D shooter game Cybermorph. The quote gained notoriety after it was highlighted in the Angry Video Game Nerd review of the game in 2009.

Origin

Cybermorph was initially released for the Atari Jaguar console on November 23rd, 1993. In the game, the player pilots a space ship to battle bosses and collect lost objects in various alien environments. In each level, the player is accompanied by an artificial intelligence guide named Skylar, who would mockingly say “where did you learn to fly?” whenever the ship is on a collision course against its surroundings (shown below).



On March 24th, 2009, GameFAQs Forum[2] member EdwardoMario16 submitted a thread titled “Crash Where did you learn to fly?” in the Cybermorph board. On the following day, the Angry Video Game Nerd uploaded a video titled “Atari Jaguar (Part 2),” which included a review of Cybermorph. When Skylar is shown repeating the phrase “Where did you learn to fly?,” host James Rolfe reacts by shooting her with a gun and replying “Where you learn to be an asshole?” (shown below).



Spread

On June 26th, 2010, YouTuber PointlessVideos4Life uploaded an 11-minute loop of Skylar repeating the question “Where did you learn to fly?” (shown below).



On September 5th, the webcomic He Also Has Drills For Hands[3] posted a comic titled “Where did you learn to fly,” which featured an illustration of Skylar repeating the question in four successive panels (shown below).



On March 12th, 2012, an entry for “Skylar” was created in the Angry Video Game Nerd Wiki,[4] which referenced the “Where did you learn to fly?” catchphrase. On October 2nd, a Facebook[1] page titled “Where did you learn to fly?” was launched.
