I agree with you. One of the best flyers I had was my brown headed and my Meyers. And both of my Pionus girls are also awesome flyers.I've found, in my experience, that the shorter tailed birds fly in what seems to me as a more powerful flight.
Akela can the same. She can also maneuver in a way that I didn't think was possible to do indoors without any wind.but I think Leia (a pionus, affectionately known as "potato birds" and built like a small Amazon) would be better at manouvering in tight spaces. She can practically hover for short periods.
Ok, this is not a parrot but...I think of IRNs...long, magnificent tails...it almost seems they take off like an airplane..
Did you know that a peacock's can fly straight up in the air at least 10 m. (I have seen it myself) Not so graceful but the first time I saw that I almost couldn't believe my eyes.
