Hi

Assume the following scenario:

You are a private pilot with 90h total flying time. Now a friend is coming to you and asks you if you can fly his helicopter from airport a to airport b. You dont have to pay anything, but you dont get compesation or hire for the taks. The friend just pays the helicopter expenses. You are not carrying any passengers or property.

Can you do that as a private pilot?

Thanks in advance
cu

Yeah you can do that, solong as you're not taking any form of payment and fare paying passengers. Most of my hours building was flying other peoples machines.

However, always check with your national authorities legal documents (ANO in the UK) to check the legality of your flight if unsure.

And check your Rated! You can't fly it if you don't have the type rating on your license. Sounds obvious but you didnt specify if it was the same type.

And before you fly it check that the machine has valid insurance and C of A and that all the paperwork (radio licence, weights and balances, etc) are in order. If there is an issue and the CAA catch up with you it will be you as pilot that gets it in the neck, not him as owner.
