I'm working on my CPL now and was posed this scenario today. It combines all sorts of knowledge of weather, airspace, FAR's, as well as the commercial pilot privelages.
A man who owns his own aircraft, a VFR only 172, approaches you to fly him from KDAB to KGIF (Winter Haven). To save a ton of wording, you would be legal in this scenario to fly in terms of common vs. private carriage. The flight is to depart at 11am local time with with weather being overcast at 1200'.
For those without a JAX sectional, the flight blows directly across MCO's Class B. I assume when asked the question that they were referring to me personally, so assume the pilot is instrument rated (even though the plane is not).
So taking into all these factors: distance of flight, time(?), weather, cloud clearances, special VFR?, commerical priveleges, etc etc, is this a legal scenario for a certified Commerical Pilot?
Apparently a lot of people get tricked up, and I'm interested to know the answer
