Wingly, the young French flight-sharing platform that connects pilots and passengers, is also taking off from London. Destinations vary: private pilots add flights they have planned and potential passengers can easily book onto them via the Wingly web-platform. Besides typical route flights, there is also a huge roster of short and long discovery flights. If you just want to show your nearest and dearest a beautiful view of the landscape, or you simply want to get away from London or have a last minute trip for business, taking a private plane is always faster.

With Wingly, you can save a lot of time on most routes, commuting included. Go for a nice lunch to the Isle of Wight next Sunday: the flight from London just takes 40 minutes and costs £32. You’ll enjoy amazing landscapes from above, which is not usually possible through the little windows of a traditional aircraft. Flying in smaller, single engine planes is a unique and fascinating experience, a real adventure.

Pilots on Wingly mostly fly with small, light aircraft. Don’t expect to take your seat as though you were in a big plane. Everything is a little bit different, but it’s still as safe. The planes that pilots use on Wingly offer between two and six seats. Flying is every pilot’s passion, and flight hours are quite expensive for them. Hence, sharing the empty seats on board enables them to fly three times as often, but for the same amount of money.

The concept is similar to a carpooling scheme, and stunningly affordable. Passengers and pilots meet on the platform to buy the pilot’s free seats. Another example of how a collaborative economy is changing everything. It’s an economic model where everyone wins: pilots can fly more often by decreasing flying costs, and passengers can enjoy a swift and affordable private flight.

Now you have the chance to discover the joy of private flying. Do you fancy a trip?
