A new ride-sharing program out is taking the concept to new heights — literally. Wingly is the first flight sharing program to operate in Europe, allowing non-commercial pilots to share the cost of flying with passengers.
The Paris-based startup offers a product that works similar to Lyft or Uber, only with 2-6 seater light airplanes instead of Camrys. Hobby fliers map out their next planned flight (e.g. a trip from Paris to the coast of Normandy), put it on the app, and wait for passengers to book their tickets.
