@MichaelP care required not to be deemed an unlicensed taxi with potential to invalidate insurance.
Like all business ideas, first one must gauge the need, develop a plan, and then conform with the regulations.
Like my aeroplanes I aim to be fully insured if I run a business.
Between friends is one thing... It’s a bit like sharing costs when flying, I’ve done this many times, but never with people I have not known before except through a business permitted to do it.
Like taking people up for their first flights, and teaching them to loop the aeroplane... Give them a certificate saying that they have learned to loop, but not authorised to fly, done under the auspices of an OC, (AOC).
Taking football players on chisel charters is not my game!
I have a few friends who I am prepared to do this with before embarking on something more serious.
In Canada I took people to many places in the Vancouver area. Devon has more to offer than Vancouver believe it or not.
I think there’s a need. Having been to many airfields with nowhere to go...
I think of Le Touquet, and Honfleur. How nice it would be to arrive and have a fellow aviator take you for lunch in their locale.
Devon is well served by airfields, but it’s difficult to go anywhere when you arrive at them.
With “Staycations” this summer, you probably won’t want to be driving yourself down there, and then there’s the problem finding accommodation. Could be a turn off I suppose, but I think there’s still space away from the madding crowd with easy in and out in an aeroplane.
I might even consider obtaining a caravan reserved for aviation use...
