Want to find someone to share expenses with, but don’t know where to start?
Try PilotShareTheRide.com. The website, started by Baldy Ivy, a working cowboy in Northern Arizona who uses a 1941 Taylorcraft to fly his ranch land, the website is designed to help pilots share their love of flying, as well as the expenses of flying as allowed by the FAA. “If you are unsure of what you can share, see the FAR/AIM Manual section 61-113,” Ivy advises.
The website includes several sections, including one to search for pilots, one to search for travelers and one to search for rentals.
Membership is free — a pilot’s favorite word — but does require filling out a standard form.
