Default Can you teach a bird to fly?

So I'm pretty sure one of my budgies doesn't know how to fly. He's probably more than a year old now and he just falls like a rock whenever he tries. It's funny but also sad. Just wondering if its possible to teach him how to fly. I thought maybe he would eventually learn from the other birds, but it doesn't seem like it.

I've been told you can have them perch on your finger or a stick and then drop your finger or stick a little and eventually they'll learn that way?
Someone else told me to keep throwing him and he'll get it eventually. But he's not hand tame so i don't want to hold him.
