Write the Right Word: Flier and Flyer

“Flier” and “flyer” are not variations of the same word. They cannot be used interchangeably.

A “flier” is a handout or circular. It also can be a pilot or airplane passenger. For example: “I received a flier about the play.”  “I am not a frequent flier.”

A “flyer” is the proper name of some trains and buses. For example: “We rode on the Western Flyer for the first time.”
