I made a macro in utils.h called IS_FLYING(ch). Like so:
#define IS_FLYING(ch)   (IS_AFFECTED((ch), AFF_FLY) || IS_FAERIE(ch) || \
        (IS_NPC((ch)) && MOB_FLAGGED((ch), MOB_FLYING)) || \

This means that if someone is flying is a Faerie (a winged race) or is a
mob that is flying via non-magical means (a bird), or has NOHASSLE on,
then they are considered flying.

I did the check as nohassle instead of level so that an immort could turn
off nohassle and fall just like mortals do so they can test their zones a
bit easier.

When you need to check and see if someone is affected by flying, do:

if (IS_FLYING(ch)) {

Hope that helps!
