Yes there is, it is no longer advice, it is an instruction, the Prime Minister said people should leave home only to exercise once a day, travel to and from work where "absolutely necessary", shop for essential items and to fulfil any medical or care needs.
How is going flying one of those things? Is it how you commute? Is it how you get to the shops? Is it how you get to the chemists? If it isn't and is, as you suggest, just "going flying" it does not fit with the latest instructions.
