You can either ‘go it alone’ or go with a qualified Pilot – the choice is yours. There are a few companies you can sign up with, but you are encouraged to choose a reputable one that adheres to the strict regulations necessary to ensure your safety: Insurance. Pilot Training. Licenses.
A good measure of a company's reliability is the length of time they have been active – the longer they’ve been in business the more likely it is they will meet all your requirements.
Above all, your personal safety is paramount, so before taking that leap into the clear blue sky, be sure you know to whom you trust your safety.
