I'm probably just going nuts

Is there a reason why "flyer" (as in "Frequent Flyer Program") is spelled differently from "flier" (as in "I sent out a flier about the festival")? I had a mental blank on it at work the other day, and it's still bugging me.

EDIT: For the record, the "frequent flyer program" we were talking about at work is spelled with a Y by the airline running it here in Australia.
