English to Swedish translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase: Flyer
English "Flyer" can refer to either an individual or an object that flies. If there is a Swedish equivalent, that is the word I am looking for. If not, the translation of "Flying" will suffice. Thank you.

flygblad, flygare

If you are searching the general translation, then "flygare" is what you want. If it is a flyer in the sense of a papersheet, "flygblad" is what you seek.
