We fly 4 seat airplanes. I, as pilot, use one seat. That leaves 3 for passengers. The only exception to this rule is a child under 24 months. A child under 24 months can be held as a lap child.
These are sightseeing tours. We are not trying to "go" somewhere. So, we fly at about 500-1500 feet above ground. Any higher just burns extra fuel. Any lower and we'll run into a tower. Plus, lower is illegal.
Again, we are not trying to go anywhere. We keep the engine pulled back some for fuel economy and our speed will be around 100-120 mph.
As a Part 91.147 operator, I must take off and land at the same airport. We will remain within 25 miles of the airport. Draw that out on a map. It's a huge circle for sightseeing purposes. We will tailor each flight to the passengers desires. We can NOT take you somewhere and land there. That is a charter and is not permitted under my Letter of Authorization and the regulations.
