That is really shocking. Truly.
Is a PPL allowed to carry passengers or not? Or just with a combination of hours/aircraft that you, or the other great and good of the forum, approve of?
Assuming a 50:50 cost share, £83 means the aircraft is costing the PPL £166 per hour. Not at all unlikely. We may think it represents poor value for money (I do) but that's hardly the issue.
I took friends flying when I had 46hrs TT. Is that allowed?
I'll say again, I don't like the public advertising of it. Sharing costs is not illegal and it would be unreasonable, unworkable and unenforceable to make it show. Being paid is illegal. The inflation of 'expenses' to allow someone to profit when they shouldn't be is a concept as old as the hills and not an aviation-specific matter.
