Aviation: Flytenow Court Hearing Set for September 25

Flytenow, the Uber-style ride sharing service for airplanes, will get its day in court next month when a federal judge hears its case against the FAA, which effectively shut down the site last summer, saying it runs afoul of private pilot cost-sharing rules that prohibit commercial air operations.
 
Flytenow strongly disagrees that its proposed service promotes “common carriage” commercial flights by private pilots, arguing that the site is nothing more than a modern-day equivalent of airport bulletin boards where pilots and passengers post about upcoming trips and agree to share expenses.

Me thinks COMAIR is nervous, and FAA is protecting ’em.
