Wing suits are used for landing purposes. See this picture of Gary Connery; he used this suit for a skydive.

How can Batman fly with his suit, instead of just skydiving?

    When does Batman fly with his suit? – Paul D. Waite Mar 18 '15 at 9:47
  • @PaulD.Waite Within the Arkham City/Origins continuity, he can gain height without thermals by diving and pulling up, so that's one case. – FuzzyBoots Mar 18 '15 at 12:10
  • @SeanDuggan: yeah that’s true. Man that was fun in Arkham City. – Paul D. Waite Mar 18 '15 at 12:24

    OP should definitely mention the source (since there apparently is one) otherwise we will have to speculate what they're referring to. – Zibbobz Mar 18 '15 at 13:03

Batman doesn't fly, he glides.
Example instances:

  • Dark Knight Trilogy
  • Arkham Series (Video Games)
  • Comics
  • Animated TV Shows and DCAU Movies

Batman Beyond on the other hand does fly with the help of rocket boots.
