This is a tough one as arguments can be made for either position. This did come up over at Board Game Geeks also. Here is what Justin sez in regards to this:

Ignore means "moving through," in essence.

1) This does mean that yes, a flying figure may be interrupted by certain effects, (Guard, Caltrops, Nimble).

2/3/4) There is no distinction or definition of a flying monster "landing." Since flying has the "ignore" when the figure is moving, and water/pit/lava, effects trigger based upon moving and/or entering spaces, a flying figure would never have to use extra movement points or suffer damage for entering those spaces.

However: because secondary effects (speaking of pit spaces and lava spaces) trigger based upon other factors that are unrelated to a flying monster's movements, a flying monster that ends its activation in a lava space would be immediately defeated, and a flying monster that ends its activation in a pit must spend an action to climb out (or move out by some other means).
