How do I create a Wingly pilot account?

If you hold a LAPL, PPL, CPL, or ATPL (A&H), flight sharing is an activity that allows private pilots to share their direct costs of a flight without profit with their passengers.

Therefore if you hold one of these licenses, a valid class 2 medical certificate, and three take-offs and landings in the last three months you can become a Wingly pilot and share your flights on our platform.

A pilot can carry out their flights with Wingly with a valid license and ratings. Therefore, pilots with an instrument flight rating (IR) can fly in IFR. The same goes for night, mountain, aerobatics, twin-engine, monoturbine…

N.B: Pilots with a CPL or ATPL license are also able to share the costs of private flights.

Below, the process of signing up to Wingly as a pilot is outlined:

Sign up to Wingly



Fill out the required information, your profile, and upload your license and your medical.




Your licenses and medical certificates get manually verified by a member of our team. You won't be able to use our platform until your documents have been validated by us.

Add your aircraft and post some flights!
