Private pilots can offer seats on their flights departing from local aerodromes. The website is part of the sharing economy. When offering a flight, the pilot shares the operational expenses with their passengers.[2]

This service is often compared to Uber, Airbnb or Blablacar.[3] All flights are insured by Allianz.[4]
