FAA Asks Supreme Court To Reject Flytenow Appeal

Aviation International News – November 17, 2016

The FAA this week asked the U.S. Supreme Court to deny Flytenow’s request to review a case it filed against the agency over its flight-sharing website. Backed by the Goldwater Institute, Flytenow has asked for the Supreme Court to review its case to overturn an FAA legal interpretation that shut down the website. The Flytenow website was designed to connect pilots with potential passengers who would share expenses on pre-planned flights. It was shuttered after the FAA determined that pilots who solicit passengers using the Fsite are “common carriers” and subject to commercial transportation requirements.
