KMKIt is a charter not private, sorry.

chapelSubsequent note from Axel Mixa:

A private pilot can offer seats, but should not post, that the seat costs USD 150 or that the passengers have to pay for it, because then this private pilot is for hire or remuneration, and this he can do only when he is a commercial pilot, and the aircraft he is flying is operating under a certificate either from the FAA or the CAA. The DOT is monitoring these boards.

Just for your info, when these private pilots arrive in the US with passengers, US Customs is now asking the passengers if they had to pay anything. So beware.

This e-mail was written for the benefit of your board, before you may be cited as an accessory to a violation.

Please be cautious.

chapelGood thinking, Sandy. Here's the note from Axel:

Hello Kimberly,
just came across the posting on the board for a flight in a private airplane from FLL to ELH, with offers for a seat rate for USD 150. I am sure that you are aware, that this offer is illegal and violates all FAA regulations, because this party (with a private airplane) is holding out to the public in the purest sense. I only hope that you take the necessary precautions against publishing messages like that.

Thank you very much.

Briland board pilots: any second opinions? Thanks for the assistance! How can we make knowledge of seats available to the community, legally?

greenebudThis is a query probably quickly and accurately answered by Axel on the Abaco Board, as he is associated with the aviation industry between the US mainland and the islands. If you get a reply from him, it's probably worth posting here
