    You may well be stopped and questioned more closely but there is no legal reason you would be prevented from flying unless you are on a no-fly list for some reason.

    Call that airline and ask, but there is no reason you can't fly within the country, unless TSA has you on no fly list. However, many other countries will not let you in with a conviction, including Canada. Check with the country's embassy.

    Probably not, but I don't know the no fly list rules. It may be a problem if it was a federal assault charge or in any way related to federal officials. It is generally illegal to leave the state without permission from your probation officer.

    A felony conviction will not bar you from flying. Depending on the age of your conviction and subsequent behavior, you may be able to get the felony vacated.
