We tried the ‘Uber for private planes’

Wingly is a flight sharing platform which allows hobbyist pilots to share the cost of their flights with passengers.

We went from London to Le Touquet, France, from Elstree Aerodrome on a Piper Arrow II P28R-200.

The flights should have cost £109 per person which includes fuel, landing fees, and Wingly’s service fee. However, we didn’t pay for the journey.

Critics say that the service isn’t safe enough and worry that it is exploiting a loophole which allows pilots without commercial licences to carry passengers as they’re technically not paying the pilot for the journey, they’re sharing costs – like carpooling.

Wingly is legal and is certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) in the UK.

It operates in the UK, France, and Germany, and has plans to expand to the rest of Europe.
