How do I correctly verify my documents?


In order to post flights on Wingly, you must upload either scans or high quality photos of your licence and medical certificate, these will then be verified manually by one of the staff members. Any documents should be approved or rejected within 24 hours (on weekdays). If you have any problems, you will receive an email informing you of this and will be required to resubmit the relevant document.

We would also encourage you to upload either the front and back of your driving licence, or the full photo page of your passport so we can verify your identity. Not only does this increase trust between passengers and pilots, once you have completed a flight, due to legal requirements we will be unable to send you any share of the flight costs from passengers until you have uploaded some form of ID in the correct form.

Please find below examples of how the required documents should be submitted:




Please ensure your name, and relevant class rating with its expiry date is clearly visible on your licence.
If you have any questions, you can contact us directly at tower@wingly.io or by phone on +447708405306. We are available from Monday to Friday from 8:30 to 17:30.
