Does online cost sharing have CAA approval?

At present, cost sharing is fully supported by the CAA, and, so long as a pilot abides by the strict regulations set by the CAA, there is no restriction on how a pilot advertises their flights. By advertising through Wingly, pilots are able to cost share in a highly regulated environment, ensuring no rules are broken. If you wish to for further clarification on the CAA's stance regarding Wingly, please do feel free to contact the organisation.
