Can I get paid to fly with a Private Pilot Certificate?

  • Categories Career prospects

No, you may not get paid compensation when acting as a pilot-in-command with a Private Pilot Certificate.

Your Private Pilot License enables you to fly a single-engine aircraft for non-commercial reasons.

For both non-commercial reasons and charity events, you can act as a pilot-in-command and be reimbursed for fuel, oil, airport expenses, and rental fees from others onboard the aircraft or the charity fundraiser organizers.
