Podcast: What You Need to Know About Flying U.S. Presidential Candidates

June 12, 2023

The 2024 presidential campaign is already underway, and candidates who need on-demand air transportation may present opportunities for business aircraft operators, even if they don’t typically carry passengers for compensation. However, operators need to be aware of the FAA, DOT and Federal Election Commission rules that apply to this type of flying. “The Federal Election Commission rules require payment by the candidate for transportation of the candidate or the candidate’s people,” notes aviation attorney Joanne Barbera. “You have to look, as a non-commercial operator, at Federal Aviation Regulation Part 91.321 first to make sure you can accept payment for the operation.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
  • Joanne Barbera, founding partner, Barbera and Watkins, LLC
  • Jason Maddux, shareholder, Garofalo Goerlich Hainbach PC
