Get Paid When You Fly….

- Get paid to place test equipment on your plane - $20-$30 per flight hour for up to several years.
- Equipment is passive and requires no change in your travel plans or flight patterns. Just fly like you normally do when you normally do.
- All equipment has an STC so it is legal and safe and has been tested for flight worthiness.
- Fully complies with FAA regulations.

Please private message me if interested or for more information.

If you are located in Colorado or have a commercial pilots license we are especially interested in talking to you.

Technically you could still do this as a private pilot and get paid for it. You're not getting paid to fly the airplane. You're getting paid to install something in your aircraft. If you were getting paid to fly your own airplane it wouldn't be legal even if you had a commerial license unless you were on a 135 certificate because you would be providing an airplane and your pilot services.

It's "test equipment" but it has an STC? Wouldn't it already be thoroughly tested prior to STC issuance?

Perhaps the subject of the test is not the equipment itself, but rather the equipment is certified to perform testing of something else.

$20-$30 PER FLIGHT HOUR means you are getting paid to fly. The FAA grants no wiggle room on this. If you take a breakfast flight with you buddy, and he pays for all the fuel, make sure it is in cash. If he pays more than half the fuel, the FAA considers that compensation for hire.

I agree with Mark's interpretation. If the compensation were a set amount up front or for a period of time then it would probably be ok, but when the compensation is based on "Per Flight Hour" it's not acceptable You fly you get paid. You don't fly you don't get paid.

Technically you are incorrect. Legal briefs have thoroughly explained what compensation is.
