I know of a South coast PPL blatantly advertising these flights as pleasure flights and sightseeing flights on social media. 4 up in a PA28 job’s at that. His inexperience is obvious to most inside the industry, but the worrying thing is that the reviews of his more or less commercial operation are excellent. The public just do not know.

The other worrying thing is that this guys FB is full of photos of his passengers flying the aircraft. Impromptu flying lessons from a 200 hour PPL. Accident waiting to happen.

At this same airfield, another company is advertising scenic flights, operated as a ‘pleasure flying club’. Nowhere on their website does it state that flights will be operated by a PPL. They get around things by charging a membership fee to their passengers. Hardly fair to legitimate flying schools and AOC’s.
