I saw this adjective in my English book,obviously it is British,but, is it a person who believes that he/she is better than the rest of everybody? Thanks for your help.
A high-flyer is a person who moves in the upper strata of society. For instance, a jet-setter is a high-flyer.
There's no such thing as a flyer-person, so the phrase high flyer-person doesn't make sense. The writer probably meant to say high-flyer.
