So "naneun" can be either "I" or "flying", and defined by the context?

"I am a dog." would be "나는 개입니다."

So, 나는 나는개입니다 would be "I am a flying dog? The first 나는 can be omitted given context, no?

This seems ambiguous, though I'm sure it's fine in practice.

Its more ambiguous than english, but korean is in general

날다 is one of those irregular verbs that lose the bottom consonant for certain situations. 나는 비행기 = flying plane. Without the rest of the sentence it's kinda weird but in terms of a sentence fragment it makes a lot more sentence to say "flying dog" than "I dog."

Excellent explanation, but every verb whose stem ends in ㄹ does the same conjugation as 날다, so technically is not considered irregular.

It’s regularly irregular. :)

Translation of "I am a dog" would need a word for "am" which is 입니다.

나는 comes from the Korean verb 날다 which is to fly. 나는 comes from 나 with the marker 는 on it. So yea it's tricky.

"to fly" and "to make (object) fly".

날다 is 'to fly' and 날리다 is 'to send flying'
