I am at the late game stages and have two colonels who are snipers (both with damn good ground ability and double tap). I have just unlocked the Archangel armor and was thinking that I could outfit both of them with this, so they could fly and fire from top.

Can you fire while flying and go into overwatch while flying as well?

@SergeyGrinev you should post that as an answer instead of comment. –  z - Dec 5 '12 at 11:49

A flying sniper CAN shoot/overwatch, but WITHOUT Damn Good Ground bonus.

Check this by press F1 key, before click OK button while shoot.


From XCOM Wiki "Flying DOES confer an elevated-position bonus, but you must fly higher than normal."
So fly higher please.
Sorry for my sloppy experience.

wow, didn't expect that. But makes sense given you have no Ground underfoot while flying :) –  Sergey Grinev Dec 7 '12 at 12:01
    
Yes, you are spot on! No DGG bonus :( –  Prasad Dec 7 '12 at 17:00

Yes, you can.

It's a common strategy to have a sniper with Squad Sight flying the whole mission on the edge of the map and kill everything, enjoying safety.
