Post Free or donated flights for nonprofits?

Hey everybody,

I'm a volunteer with the World University Project (WUP) and I've been tasked with finding information regarding flight services provided for free to non-profit and non-governmental organizations, including charity flights, donated flights, travel credit systems (e.g., the UNICEF-EasyJet deal), which are provided either by public benefit flying organizations or corporations (e.g., corporate sponsorships). I would really appreciate any pointers or suggestions!

-Chris

Check out any of the Angel Flights, Air Care Alliance, Grace,
and so on.

Also check with AOPA to make sure you have all the "i's dotted so you
don't end up getting charged with commercial operation.

That's true, but we're talking about the FAA here. You have to
publicize and conduct the flights the right way, otherwise the FAA
will charge you with unlicensed commercial operation. AOPA has
material on how to do that.


Publicize flights?? Why does the AOPA need to be involved?

Let's see if I can say it better: if you don't listen to decent
advice - say from AOPA - on offering a charity flight service,
the FAA will bust your ass for a commercial operation.

I'd probably check the FARs first.
