Default How long for clipped wings to grow back

I have a 3ish month old English budgie. She knows how to fly and all, but the owner clipped the wings before shipping her out. I can tell she wants to fly and loves to but now that she is used to my house i know she wont be flying into stuff. So now i am impatient for her feathers to grow back. How long would it take until she can fly again? My budgies always had clipped wings when i first brought them home, so it would be easier to tame them and keep them from flying into things and hurting themselves. But i dont remember how long it would take for the wings to grow back. Once they do then i never clip the wings again.
So im just curious, how long would it take a baby budgie to be able to fly again?

At 3 months old, she should be going into her first moult. She should regrow some flight feathers, but if it's a really harsh clip it may take until her next moult for them all to grow back.

So will she be able to fly again after she molts, even without all her flight feathers grown in?

Not necessarily. It depends on which feathers come in and if the wings are balanced feather-wise and strong enough to fly.

Once the flight feathers come back, you'd be much better off allowing her to be fully flighted from then on.
