How do I contact a pilot once I have booked?

Once a flight has been booked and confirmed by the pilot, their phone number will become available to you. We always recommend keeping a steady flow of contact with the pilot before the flight to ensure that you are aware of all of the procedures and so that your day can go as smoothly as possible!

Here are the steps of how to find the contact details of the pilot from the moment the booking is confirmed:

1. To find the pilot's phone number after the booking has been confirmed, you will need to login and click on 'dashboard'.



2. If the pilot has confirmed that they are able to do the flight, you will see this on your 'dashboard'.



3. Once you have clicked on the booking, you will find the pilot's number here:


4. Click on 'My flights'. 



5. From here, you'll see 'Bookings'.



6. Finally, you'll see your upcoming bookings with the pilot's phone number.
