As you progress in Hogwarts Legacy following the main questline, you will get the mission to complete Jackdaw’s Rest story quest. After completing the Jackdaw’s Rest main story quest, you will get a new quest called Flying Class. In this quest, players will learn how to use a broom to fly in the game from Madam Kogawa.


After completing the Flying Class quest, you can buy a broom from Sprintwitch Sporting Needs, a shop in Hogsmeade Village. 


Below we have shared the steps to purchase a broom from Sprintwitch Sporting Needs shop:

  • Visit Sprintwitch Sporting Needs shop.
  • Interact with the shop owner, Albie Weekes.
  • Pick a broom you want to buy.
  • Pay 600 coins to get your first broom.

If you don’t have 600 coins, you can either sell your gear to vendors or earn them by completing quests, looting bags, chests, and more. As soon as you have purchased your first broom, a new Flight Test quest with Imelda Reyes at the Quidditch Pitch will become available. Upon completing this quest, Albie will upgrade your broom to make it easier to fly.
