Q:Am I covered to carry passengers if we are "Cost Sharing" the flight?
A:Yes you are covered. As a private pilot you are allowed to carry up to six cost-sharing passengers in a light aircraft providing, no profit is made. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) says costs do not have to be shared equally but the pilot must make a contribution. We suggest you contact the CAA if you are in any doubt of the rules around this. No profit is allowed in this situation, as that would make it a commercial flight for which an Air Operator Certificate would be needed from the CAA. It is illegal to conduct commercial flights without that certificate.
