Conduct of Charity Flights

Conduct of Charity Flights

As of 5th August 2015 the the CAA has changed the regulation and guidance for conducting Charity Flights. The key change that affects microlight pilots is that now a passenger can be carried on a Charity Flight, previously not allowed in a microlight.

The CAA information contains the advice that pilots should make the passenger aware that they are flying in a private aircraft with a private pilot, not in a Commercial Aircraft with a Commercial Pilot, and understand that risk and also pilots should check that their insurance company does not exclude such flights.

Pilots should also be aware of the CAA definition of Charity Flights which includes "money [all] must be paid by the passenger directly to the registered charity and the charity cannot be the operator of the aircraft." The pilot cannot be paid.
