In reply to:
What I’m really trying to figure out is … is there an issue? Is flying Angel Flight passengers in your plane actually opening you to much more legal risk than just flying yourself around in your plane? If it’s not, I’ll join up, if it is, I’ll think about it some more.
Roland; Since I started this tread, I will respond.
No Roland, there is no more legal risk than just flying around yourself . . . in fact, there is much less. To start, prior to each flight, passengers must sign a release of liability. That is a lot more than you get from you usual passengers.
Next, the family would be much more sympathetic. Next, while unwritten, a jury would be much more sympathetic and understanding.
Go ahead and join Angel Flight. Life without exposure to risk does not exist. Every neighborhood toting soccer mom takes the same risk, but does it everday.
Life without meaning and the ability to share your passions and your desire to help others, is empty.
Give, not because they ask, but give because you can give.
