Where did you see this? What is the whole sentence? I'm pretty sure this is not a set phrase. "de vuelo" means "of flight" and would often be the adjective "flight" in English. "en torno" means "concerning", "around" or "approximately".

I agree that more information is needed.

Never mind, I confused volar with volver. The sentence makes sense to me now.
Thanks

In order to let us make better proposals for translations, it would be very helpful that you wrote the whole sentence and then asked about the specific words you don't understand...

In this case, guessing from a cut sentence was almost impossible, since "rutas" and "de la ciudad" were essential for understanding.

@David: what would be in this case the difference between "routes" and "patterns"?

There really wouldn't be a lot of difference. This is just a case of one way being the more common, established way of saying it. A route would refer to the entire distance from one airport to another. When an airplane approaches the airport, it goes "into pattern" so the route the airplane needs to take right near the airport before landing is often referred to as a pattern.
