Community Flight Agreement

February 26, 2019

The Community Flight Agreement is the agreement between the creator of the flight (lessee of the aircraft in accordance with the Aircraft Lease) and members of the BlackBird community wishing to join the previously arranged flight.

BlackBird users engaging in a community flight agreement understand and agree that BlackBird’s platform provides an online aviation marketplace and BlackBird is not an FAA certified direct or indirect air carrier, does not own, maintain, or operate aircraft, and does not directly employ pilots.

In addition to matching pilots, aircraft, and users, the BlackBird marketplace will match members of the BlackBird community with other members who have utilized the platform to arrange travel.

To travel on a community flight, joining members:

  • Will not compensate the user leasing the aircraft
  • Do not have operational control of the trip
  • May be charged platform fees for using the BlackBird marketplace to join a flight
  • Must follow the requirements in the User Terms and Conditions

Members leasing an aircraft via the BlackBird marketplace and allowing members of the BlackBird community to join their flight:

  • Will not accept compensation from joining BlackBird members
  • Understand and agree to maintain operational control of the flight
  • Will not advertise, sell, or otherwise “hold out” their flight
  • Are responsible for hiring or providing qualified flight crew to operate the flight
