Do Science to It

PC Races and Flight

So, I'm working on a campaign setting. Generally speaking, the world is made of floating islands, so airships and such are an important part of the game. My sticking point is that I have two races that can fly. Since this is obviously a significant advantage, I'm having some trouble balancing them, and talking with some D&D friends have only complicated the matters. I feel that the aerial nature of the setting makes flight even more useful than it normally is, and my friend believes that flight becomes more standard and therefore less meaningful.

Any help or suggestions with how to handle these creatures would be quite welcome.
