Book and pay for a flight

Book and pay for a flight

Making a booking request on Wingly is very simple! Once the request has been sent, the pilot will have 48 hours to answer.

First, make sure you are logged in to your Wingly account, then follow the steps below:

Step 1 - Select the place from which you want to take off (city, region or airport), find the flight of your dreams and click on "Book this flight":

When doing your booking, you will need to select the following information:
  1. The desired date and time slot for the flight.
  2. The number of passengers you wish to book for. 
The possible time slots are as follows: All day: 8am-8pm, Morning: 6am-12am, Afternoon: 12pm-4pm, End of day: 4pm-8pm, Night: 8pm+.
The pilot will then suggest a take-off time within this range.

Step 2 - Then fill in the information requested concerning the date of the flight and the passengers, and write a message to your pilot if you have any questions:

The time chosen is not necessarily the time at which the flight will take place, but rather an ideal time communicated to the pilot.
The final time will be chosen by the pilot, according to his availability and that of the aircraft at his flying club.
Alternative dates correspond to other availabilities that the pilot can accept in the event of not being available on the date initially requested.
A verified phone number is required to complete your booking request.

Step 3 - Proceed with the payment with a credit or debit card, PayPal or with a gift card

If your gift card is already redeemed in your Wingly account, it will be automatically applied at checkout.
If your gift card covers the full price of the flight, you will need to click on "Pay 0£" to confirm your booking request.


If an error message is displayed when adding your gift voucher, this may be due to the fact that you have a voucher created as a result of a goodwill gesture or that the voucher is already registered on another account. In the latter case, please contact our customer support directly by e-mail at

Step 4 - Once your booking request has been sent, the pilot has 48 hours to accept, propose an alternative date or refuse it.

If your booking request is declined more than 48h before the chosen date (main date or alternative date), it will be sent automatically to all the other pilots available in the area of the chosen flight so another pilot can take it over. 
You will then receive an email to notify you about it and will be able to find all the details of the pending search in the "My bookings" tab of your Wingly account.
