Fund Raiser for Almost Home Dog Rescue

Postby LoriSeeley on Mon Apr 25, 2011 6:07 pm

We are having a fund raiser for Almost Home Dog Rescue out of Terra Ceia, Florida. The fundraiser will be held at Ophelia's Restaurant May 1 from 5-8 PM in Nokomis, Florida. We will be having a silent auction. Looking for a pilot out of Venice or Sarasota that would be willing to donate a 30 minute plane tour of the gulf coast in our area for 2. Any takers? Check out Almost Home Dog for details on the non-profit 501( c) 3 organization. Please email me if your would like to help us out with the plane tour: Best, Lori

I'm in Texas, so I can't help with the flight, but I want to be sure you are aware of the changes made a few years ago regarding these types of flights. It is section 91.146, Passenger-carrying flights for the benefit of a charitable, nonprofit, or community event. There are some requirements that need to be met, although they are not onerous. The ones that stand out to me are 1) the flight must be within 25 miles of the airport, 2) the pilot must have at least 500 hours, 3) airplane must have standard airworthiness certificate, and 4) the local Flight Standards District Office must be notified at least 7 days in advance with a few specific items. Go for it, have fun, raise some money, but keep it legal so that the FAA doesn't decided to write this possibility out of the regs next time.!OpenDocument
