Sharing Aircraft Operating Expenses
This posting will be removed on
Monday, July 19, 2021

Many continue to ask what, if any, operating expenses may a private pilot share with passengers on a flight?  What's a pro-rata share? What's a "common purpose"?  What's "compensation"?

Advisory Circular 61-42 (Date 02/25/2020) demystifies these issues and provides straight forward guidance on many more.  Please review the document to ensure conformity.  If you have any questions, please contact us.
