What are the best practises for a Wingly Pilot?

Below is our list of best practices’ which will help you and your passengers to get the most from your adventures with us:

1. Safety is your top priority

‘Safety culture’ is a key phrase in the aviation community and at Wingly we integrate tools to help achieve this. We give you the option to cancel a flight at any time and for any reason, even after it has been booked, in the comfort that our system and team will be there to support your choice. Wingly pilots choose where they fly when they fly and who they fly with.



2. You brief your passengers on all aspects of their flight

Many passengers encounter light aircraft, or even flight itself, for the first time through our platform. A good pilot understands the importance of briefing their passengers, making sure that everyone is prepared for the flight ahead. We regularly receive feedback from passengers who were delighted with the knowledge they gained before and during their flight.



3. You establish and refine your flying routine

As with every aspect of flying, consistency is key. A good Wingly pilot will establish and follow a routine to apply to any given flight, ensuring that they and their passengers get the most out of the adventure. 



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.
