.. flying out of the door = .. sells like hot cakes
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am on the right track by the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?
His spring 2001 evening collection included little crÍpe "classic cocktail" selections that were flying out the door, and his evening wear has continued to sell well.
The product went on sale yesterday and apparently it is flying out of the door.
the product is flying out of the door = there is a run on the product, the product sells like hot cakes
Thank you for your efforts.

I'm not a professional teacher but that is exactly how the phrase would be used and understood by native speakers here in NZ.
