There are places where you can move at 7--the plains. I don't know what
deserts or other terrains are at, but I'd say that less than -2 days for
a road is little gain for the effort and maintenance. Flying is a good
deal in that it does NOT care what the terrain is--and realistically,
fliers need to rest more often/feed more often. Like cavalry, I
expect--not much faster than infantry over distance, but very quick on
the field.
