Book an aircraft for a private flight on OpenFly: how does it work?
On OpenFly, you do not book a pre-organised flight directly. OpenFly is not an airline, flights are not planned in advance! It is a portal that connects people who want to travel with professional pilots and private aircraft owners. When you log on to OpenFly, you indicate the trip you wish to make and the portal automatically finds the private aircraft and professional pilots available for your request.
