Hiring planes for short trips

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I’m an absolute newbie so apologies if this is a dumb question, but Is there an easy way to do short flights? For example, I want to visit my sister in lakes entrance in cup weekend and I thought, wouldn’t it be cool if I could fly those 260 Kim’s instead of drive them. Given aircraft appear to be hired by the hour I can’t see any way to do this without it costing thousands of dollars. Am I right? Is that the case? Has no one yet figured out a way to connect pilots to aircraft (Uber app style). If there is an app or some other way then I’d love to know about it. Thanks!

Toppee, usually hire by the hour goes on engine time not by the time you pick it up and drop it off so a 260km each way trip in a 100kt aircraft would be 3 to 3 1/2 hire time depending on winds
