See p.46 "Ground Attack", E40k Rule Book:
"2. Flyers have an unlimited move, but can only travel straight ahead.
Enemy units can snap-fire at them as they move. However, unlike other
units, flyers don't have to halt when snap-fired at."

Still makes large infantry screens better than flak in many cases...
