Interesting VFR reposition flight, KJFK-KLGA

November, 29, 2019 by

A positioning flight is a flight for the sole purpose of positioning the aircraft to conduct another flight from another airport. This is often done when the aircraft finishes its day in one city, but is needed in a different city the following day because another plane has broken down.

I came across one today featured in this video, from JFK to La Guardia. The interesting part being that they ended up having to depart VFR due to an issue with them filing their flight plan.
