Imagine starting an airline. Well, today’s guest and his two mates just did. And you can fly as often as you want for one (pretty reasonable) flat rate.
Luke Hampshire is the co founder of Fly Airly – a very different kind of airline.
“How different?” Well, put it this way, Fly Airly flies only between three of Australia’s main cities – Melbourne, Sydney & Canberra – and it’s a membership-based pricing model in which they charge a flat monthly fee which allows you to fly as often as you like.
Cool, huh? Brave, definitely!

If you want to know what it’s like to not have a job but earn good money then listen in – as Gary and his team have mastered the art of loving what they do.
