The Levitation Charm

"Their feather rose off the desk and hovered about four feet above their heads."
Hermione Granger's successful casting of the Levitation Charm in her first year[src]

Levitation was the magical ability to make targeted objects fly.[1] It was described by Filius Flitwick, Charms Master at Hogwarts School, as one of a wizard's "most rudimentary skills".[2]

Spells used for levitation

"Essential Tip # 1: If you choose to have a meal at a table that has been levitated (as many beginning students do), it is wise to also levitate one's chair."
