This is a group for anyone interested in flying over the bay area. Anybody who wishes to live the exciting experience of San Francisco and its surroundings from the air is welcome to join the private flights organized through this group . Will (an enthusiast private pilot) is flying regularly there and is pleased to allow Meetup friends onboard. Join in and let's go flying! Flights usually depart from Oakland Airport and car pooling is organized, so that everything's easy!

Private pilots are welcome also! They will be able to become organizers and organize their own flight and let members know!

Important Disclaimer and legal notice: no commercial flights, only private flights, are organized. FAA Regulations allows donations/expense sharing in order to share operating expenses of the flight, but the pilot may not pay less than its pro-rata share and may not be compensated in any way.

All flights are intended to happen even if no passengers join in. This is not a common carriage forum and the passengers and pilot must share the same, common purpose of recreational flying over the Bay.

Here is a quote of official FAA regulations that you must read and understand before joining a flight within this group:

(a) Except as provided in paragraphs (b) through (h) of this section, no person who holds a private pilot certificate may act as pilot in command of an aircraft that is carrying passengers or property for compensation or hire; nor may that person, for compensation or hire, act as pilot in command of an aircraft.

(c) A private pilot may not pay less than the pro rata share of the operating expenses of a flight with passengers, provided the expenses involve only fuel, oil, airport expenditures, or rental fees.

Full paragraph of 14 CFR 61.113 can be found here
