Let us know if you find someone here whose actually willing to pay a pilot to ferry their aircraft. That's a rarity on this forum and I for one would love to see it happen!

It does happen, but it's usually private owners or business that aren't well connected to the flight training industry (and the plight of low-time aviators) or who genuinely want flight instruction during their flights.

 

But I agree, it's far less common than it should be.

I regularly pay people to ferry helicopters.  They just tend to be my cfi's flying solo as I know and trust them.   They get paid there normal hourly rate.  I don't get any revenue out of it but an R22 with one person on board gets there a lot faster with a cfi flying solo.  No girlfriends.  Not students. On a long ferry that might require an overnight with two people on board a single cfi can maybe do it safely in one day when he doesn't have to worry about the schedule of the other person.   So there's an advantage to someone you know well doing this.
