The Fleshlight Flight is a bit of a redheaded stepchild in Fleshlight's family of male masturbation toys.

It's not as compact and discreet as its newest sibling, the Fleshlight Quickshot. Nor is it quite as realistic as a full-sized Fleshlight Girl.

But a Fleshlight Flight is $30 cheaper than a top-of-the-line Fleshlight Girls model, and it still engulfs your dick when you penetrate its fleshy orifice.

Here's a quick preview of what we'll be covering in this Fleshlight Flight Pilot review:

Fleshlight Flight Pilot review



  • 40% cheaper than Fleshlight Girls
  • Compact size
  • “Mini-Destroya” Pilot sleeve offers intense, varied stimulation 
  • Easy to clean and fast drying (for a Fleshlight)


  • Only 3 sleeve options
  • May be too narrow for girthy guys
  • Sleeve won’t completely engulf long dicks
  • Slanted back cap makes re-applying lube awkward

What is a Fleshlight Flight?

What is a Fleshlight Flight?

Fleshlight Flight Pilot box

The Pilot is the most popular, best-rated model in Fleshlight’s Flight series of travel masturbators with clear “Ice” sleeves. Compared to larger models, the Flight Pilot offers a more compact form factor, stealthier design, and lower price point. Priced at just $49.95, the Flight Pilot is $30 cheaper than a Fleshlight Girls, which retail for $79.95.


Size and weight

Fleshlight Flight size comparison: Pilot vs Quickshot Vantage vs Quickshot Boost
At 8 inches tall x 3.5 inches in diameter, the Fleshlight Flight Pilot is more than an inch taller and slightly thicker than a bottle of Red Stripe beer and my two Quickshots.
  • Case length: 8 inches / 20.3 cm
  • Case diameter (at widest point): 3.5 inches / 8.9 cm
  • Weight: 14.1 ounces / 400 grams

Will you fit?

Fleshlight Flight Size Guide Diagram
  • LENGTH: If your dick is less than 6.75 inches long, it will fit inside the sleeve. Longer dicks may still fit, but will stick out a little bit at the base.
  • GIRTH/THICKNESS: If your circumference is 5.5″ of less, you’ll fit just fine.

Fleshlight Flight Pilot Sleeve

Fleshlight Flight Pilot Sleeve

Fleshlight Pilot Ice sleeve and cap

The Flight’s sleeve is made from Fleshlight’s signature SuperSkin material housed inside a jet black case. Its swirled entry hole is a non-anatomical, “non-descript” design that doesn’t try to simulate the visual appearance of women’s vaginas or buttholes. 

The "Mini-Destroya" Nickname

The 'Mini-Destroya' Nickname

The Fleshlight Flight Pilot is often called the “Mini-Destroya” on the internet because the design of the Pilot sleeve's internal texture is nearly identical to the legendary Stoya Destroya Fleshlight.

Mini-Destroya vs Destroya sleeve differences

  • The Pilot sleeve’s entry hole is wider and less intense than the Destroya’s.
  • Shorter “runway”: The bland “runway” immediately after the entry was shortened by 0.8 inches (2 cm), allowing you to enjoy it’s textures sooner. 
  • Rear chambers moved forward: The compartments in the back were moved closer to the front, allowing more guys to experience those sensations. 
  • Taper removed from last chamber: The width of the ribbed rear chamber was straightened out. 

Other than these minor modifications, the “Mini-Destroya” and Destroya sleeves are identical.

So if you’re interested in a Fleshlight that spoils you with luxurious tightness and stimulation, you might want to take a closer look at the Fleshlight Flight Pilot.

First impressions

First Impressions

Open Fleshlight Flight Pilot and Sliquid Sassy lube bottle
Despite its low price point, the Fleshlight Flight feels well-built and sturdy when you pick it up. In other words, it’s got the same build quality and craftsmanship as other Fleshlight products.  

The Flight series masturbators seem to be built with usual high-quality materials as Fleshlight’s other masturbators.

In your hand, the smooth plastic case feels substantial, but not awkward or heavy. The graceful, curved housing and the angled back cap look modern and non-Fleshlight-y, which adds stealth and hide-ability. 

My biggest complaint about the case is the embossed Flight logo on the side. That little logo adds no value to the user experience and prevents the Pilot from being very stealthy and discreet masturbation tool. 

How Does It feel?

How Does It Feel To Use?

Flight Pilot non-descript sleeve orifice

After my new Flight Pilot arrived, I enthusiastically tested it in multiple solo and partnered play sessions over a three-week period.

After applying a little lube to the entry, I enjoy teasing my head with the Pilot’s delicate see-through orifice, twisting it around and gently “kissing” my cock head with its soft “lips”. The entry is fairly wide and loose, so it’s easy to penetrate.

It's tight and intense

My dick is slightly thicker than average, so the Pilot sleeve felt just as tight and intense as everyone says it would. If you're in the market for a tight sleeve but need a larger stroker, check out our recommendations for tight, intense Fleshlights.

It makes your package look bigger

It’s exciting to see myself sliding in and out of the clear orifice, which also acts like a magnifying glass making my penis look bigger.

The first chamber comes up fast, and you can feel each of the tiny nodes and tentacles stimulating your tip.

The longer fangs of the second chamber are more aggressive as you push through them. They’re so intense that it’s almost a relief to reach the gentle ribbed section at the end of the sleeve.

Overall, the “Mini-Destroya” sensations feel amazing, and you can feel each one as they massage your shaft and head. 

Doesn't eat lube

Compared to some other sleeves, the Flight Pilot is fairly economical in the lube department. Unlike some sleeves, it doesn't eat lube or require frequent reapplication. If you're looking for a quality lube for Fleshlights, here's the Fleshlight lube Reddit recommends.

Long, strong orgasms

In the three weeks I’ve been using my Fleshlight Flight Pilot, I’ve had some of the longest, strongest orgasms I’ve ever had from using a Fleshlight.

Great for quickies and medium-length sessions

If you want a Fleshlight for quickies and medium-length sessions, you should keep the Flight Pilot on your list. The tight, multi-textured sleeve feels amazing, and the stimulation is so intense that orgasms can come very suddenly.

Edging is a fun challenge

Some guys say that the heavily-textured ‘Mini-Destroya’ isn’t designed for long masturbation sessions since it’s so intense. But in my opinion, they’re only partly right.

Delaying orgasms with the Pilot is a fun challenge that requires paying lots of attention to your body, especially those Kegel muscles.

Personally, I think guys with some stamina training experience with Fleshlights will still be able to delay climaxing for a decent amount of time.

Light weight is the second reason why the Flight Pilot is good for edging. After an hour of holding the 14-ounce Fleshlight Flight, my hands, wrists and arms never started feeling tired, or like I needed to switch hands.

If you want to find a smaller male masturbator that doesn’t feel heavy, the Fleshlight Flight series may be a real godsend.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Cleaning and Maintenance

Cleaning Fleshlight Flight sleeve with cold water

Cleaning my Pilot sleeve with water at the faucet is quick.

Cleanup is every guy’s least favorite part of using Fleshlights, but can you really blame us? We just climaxed, so we’d prefer to go to sleep or get on with our day instead of spending time cleaning sex toys.

That’s another reason I love my Fleshlight Flight Pilot: it’s truly fast to clean and dry. From start to finish, it takes 3 to 4 minutes to clean with water and a little antimicrobial toy cleaner.

Impressive drying times

Drying Fleshlight Flight Pilot Ice sleeve and black caps

My freshly-washed Pilot sleeve takes about an hour to air-dry.

I currently have five Fleshlights in my collection, and the only ones that dry faster than the Pilot are my Quickshots, which are open on both ends.

Storage, Hiding and Travel Options

Storage, Hiding and Travel Options

Fleshlight Flight storage options in dresser drawer
The Fleshlight Flight small enough to fit into any of your cabinets, totes, or bags.

If stealth and privacy are high priorities for you, you’ll like how easily you can stuff this compact Fleshlight into any box, bag, or drawer when you’re ready to put it away. 

And since it doesn’t “look like a Fleshlight”—or any other kind of sex toy—your Pilot won’t be recognized immediately by parents, airport TSA agents or other people who stumble upon it by accident. 

All that makes it an especially discreet travel masturbator for business trips, weekend getaways and long road trips.

Fleshlight Flight Comparisons

Fleshlight Flight Comparisons vs Alternatives

Fleshlight Flight Pilot vs Fleshlight Quickshot

  • Both the Flight and the Quickshot are small enough to fit in any of your favorite hiding places and super-fast drying.
  • Size-wise, if your girth is 6 inches or less, you should fit both. 
  • But the Quickshot’s 4.4 inch open-ended sleeve doesn’t engulf your dick or come close to realistically simulating the feel of a vagina or butthole.
  • The fullness of the Flight’s entry offers a really nice feeling of pushing into something. 

Fleshlight Flight vs Fleshlight Go

  • Size-wise, the Flight is slightly shorter than the Fleshlight Go models, so if your member is average-size, you’ll be big enough to enjoy the entire length of the Flight sleeve. 
  • The Flight Pilot is very intense, but not as intense as the Go Surge.
  • Stimulation is somewhere in between the Go Surge and the Go Torque, but not nearly as tight.
  • In my opinion, the Pilot is equally good for quickies and medium-length jack-off sessions with an amazing climax.
  • If you’ve worked on building your stamina, the Pilot will work for longer edging sessions, but you’ll need to pay attention to your body and pace yourself.

Flight Pilot vs Fleshlight Girls Stoya Destroya

  • The “Mini-Destroya” is more compact, light, and discreet than any big Fleshlight, and takes much less time to dry.
  • The Pilot’s transparent Ice sleeve is less realistic than the Fleshlight Girls Lady Destroya or the Pink Fleshlight Destroya
  • Due to the case size and sleeve thickness, the “Mini-Destroya” feels tighter than the Destroya. However, the Destroya is both tight and “roomy”, and feels more realistic overall. 

Buy the “Mini-Destroya” if you’re:

  • 6 inches or less in length: Since you’ll get to enjoy more of the awesome “Mini-Destroya” sleeve.
  • 5 inches or less in girth: Since the Pilot’s canal isn’t as wide, you’ll feel that “Mini-Destroya” tightness.

Buy either one if you’re:

  • 6 to 6.5 inches in length: Since you can enjoy the majority of both sleeves.
  • 5 to 5.5 inches in girth: Since you’ll be able to enjoy the contact pressure of both sleeve’s textures.

Buy the Destroya if you’re:

  • 7 inches or longer: Since the Pilot sleeve won’t engulf the entire length of your penis.
  • 5.5 inches or more in girth: Since the Pilot sleeve will feel too tight and uncomfortable.


Buying Recommendations

The Fleshlight Flight is ideal for guys who …

  • Are average or below-average in length and girth
  • Have considered a large Fleshlight, but want a smaller, lighter and cheaper sex toy
  • Want a masturbator that’s truly fast to clean and dry
  • Need a discreet sex toy they can hide and store anywhere
  • Want a new couples sex toy for partner play

Do not buy a Fleshlight Flight if you ...

  • Have a dick longer than 6.75 inches or thicker than 5 inches around
  • Get excited by sex toys with realistic-looking pussies and butts
The Fleshlight Flight compact male masturbator is a ton of fun, but may be too tight for some penises.
