Flytenow Flight-sharing Case Seeks Supreme Court Hearing

Aviation International News – June 28, 2016

On June 24, the Goldwater Institute asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the case that it filed (and lost) against the FAA, in which it sought to reverse the FAA’s action that shut down the flight-sharing website Flytenow. The website connects pilots with passengers who are willing to share expenses to travel with pilots on pre-planned flights. FAA regulations permit sharing of expenses, as long as the pilots and passengers are traveling to the same destination and the pilot isn’t planning the trip solely to fulfill the passenger’s travel needs.
