    Not taking a side here, but the US Supreme Court should require the DOT to establish a consistent policy whether the non-profit vehicle operator is "driving" a plane or "piloting" a car. Either require both drivers/pilots of flight and ground ride sharing operations to have a commercial license, or don‘t require it of either. I speak as a certified flight instructor holding a commercial pilot license with a an instrument rating. The key, I believe, is for the operation to non-profit, something I don‘t really believe is entirely true for Flyte or Uber, but neither do I believe it to be absolutely essentia - just materially so.
