Well, the "flying" suutra goes like this:

kaayaakaashayoH saMbandha-saMyamaal laghu-tuula-samaapattesh
caakaasha-gamanam (ca + aakaasha-gamanam).

Now, the form (without sandhi) "samaapatteH" is ablative/genitive
singular of "samaapatti". As a noun, according to CDSL, it doesn't
have the meaning 'flying', but it seems rather safe to assume
that its root, sorta, is the verb "samaapat". Here are the
meanings for the noun and the verb:

samApatti f. coming together , meeting , encountering Ka1lid. ; 
accident , chance (see comp.) ; falling into any state or condition , 
getting , becoming (comp.) Yogas. ; assuming an original form , 
APra1t. ; completion , conclusion [...]

 samApat P. %{-patati} , to fly together towards , rush violently 
upon , attack , assail (acc.) MBh. R. &c. ; to descend , alight 
VarBr2S. ; to come together , be united sexually with (%{saha}) 
MBh. ; to come to , attain ib.  

Thus, Patañjali might have hmmm...embedded(?) "flying together"
in that suutra...or, then again, praps not... Nyt tämä poika
lähti *askalle! :)
