    I don't see any problem with it. Frank Sinatra has a song called "Fly Me To The Moon".

    One of the many definitions for fly found in the Macmillan Dictionary is "to take people or goods somewhere by plane." In this sentence, fly is an imperative, often used for making suggestions or giving orders. Other examples: Move to the rear of the bus.
