Why Scootaloo can't fly

Because Scootaloo doesn't want to fly. She's too awesome to fly. She'd rather just ride her scooter. Heck, she can use her scooter to fly.
Seriously though, I've seen a lot of fanfics and comics and stuff depicting that Scootaloo can't fly and she's sad about it, but has she ever actually expressed distress and disappointment of her inability to elevate herself in the show? If my memory serves right, I don't think she did. So it's quite possible that she just can't fly yet, but it's not like it's killing her so.
Still, it's possible that she just isn't trying 'cause she doesn't care when she flies.
I don't think it's that she doesn't want to, but she can't and is slightly upset. She does idolise Rainbow Dash and her flying. If she didn't idolise Rainbow Dash, I might agree, but I think she does want to fly.

I think for some reason, Miss Faust hates Scootaloo if she says that she's handicapped, or she must be a troll...
As far as I remember, Lauren Faust said that Scootaloo was handicapped. That would be a reasonable explanation why she cannot fly.

Nobody really knows where Scootaloo came from, who her parents are, or even where she lives. For all we know she is an orphan who was never taught how to properly fly.
I don't think it's because she has little wings, because there is another Pegasus that has small wings: Snowflake
I don't know whether or not he can fly for sure, but if he couldn't fly, then why would he be helping with the Hurricane? Fluttershy isn't a very strong flier and she was there, and I don't recall Scootaloo being there.
I don't think it's magic either, aren't Unicorns and Alicorns the only ponies that can use magic?

What's his name? Pound cake? Yeah, him, he is just a couple months old and he is already a strong flyer, he is also being raised by three earth ponies. I gonna have to say the problem lies with Scootaloo's wings, to me they seem more like a humming birds(quick fast little) instead of big strong ones like Dash's.
. Schooling probably has something to do with it too, as it seems like most pegasi go to flight school. They may learn how to fly there.
