a high-flyer 是在指事业上有极高抱负的成功职业人士。
- Daniel is such a high-flyer. He's only 31 years old and he's already the financial director of the company.
- My brother is a high-flying businessman and travels all over the world.
值得注意的是，另外有一个短语 high-flown, 虽然拼写很像 high-flyer，但含义不一样，意思是夸张的，华而不实的。
- He tried to seduce Katherine with high-flown language, but she wasn't impressed.
- Jane has high-flown ideas about morality but she's never nice to me!
