So I hold a commercial license and have a 2nd class medical. My wife is an engineer and a product she works on needs to be altitude tested (unrelated to aviation). She was suggesting that we could rent the plane from the flying club I am a member of and she could submit the receipt and get reimbursed for the flight cost. If she wasn't my spouse and was a friend asking me to rent a plane and give her the bill I'm pretty sure this is pretty clearly not OK.
We talked about doing a "pro-rata share" but wasn't sure how that's defined cause... it's my wife - shared finances and all that. Any experts have any feedback on whether or not we're okay to do this? Or if we really want to do it do we just eat the cost of the flight ourselves?
EDIT: Clarifying based on comments - This is USA (CPL) and my wife and/or company wouldn't be on the bill. It would be my name because it's a flying club and they would only rent the plane to me. So it would get charged to a credit card in my name (joint account with my wife) and she'd turn around and get it reimbursed. I agree, I'm not "holding out" in my opinion... but just trying to make sure I keep things above board.
