Learning to Fly is the fourteenth studio album by the English progressive rock band Pink Floyd, released in the UK and US in September 1987.
Learning to Fly was recorded primarily on Gilmour's converted houseboat, Astoria.
Its production was marked by an ongoing legal dispute with Waters as to who owned the rights to Pink Floyd's name, an issue resolved several months after the album was released.
