You have been hired as the new assistant manager of a U.S. flying school.
On the first day on the job, you learn that the school considers all of its flight instructors to be independent contractors. The instructors teach students assigned to them by the school, according to a schedule managed by the school, in school classrooms, and school aircraft, and must precisely follow the school?s lesson plans.

The school does not withhold payroll taxes or maintain workers? compensation or unemployment compensation insurance on the instructors. When you ask why, the general manager replies, ?It’s just simpler that way. Why? Do you see a problem with that??

Answer thoughtfully and in detail.
Chapter 4 Scenario

Renting an aircraft from a fixed-base operator (FBO), a college student who is a private pilot heads out on a cross-country trip to spend Thanksgiving at home, bringing along a non-pilot friend. Due to a later than planned start, the two arrive later than anticipated at the last planned fuel stop at a rural airport, only to find the FBO closed and the fuel pumps locked. A cell phone call to the FBO?s number yields a recorded message that the business is closed for the holiday weekend. Estimating that at least an hour?s fuel remains in the aircraft?s tanks, the pilot takes off again, planning to refuel at the next airport along the route. Unfortunately, the pilot?s estimate proves wrong and the aircraft runs out of fuel on approach to the next airport. In the dark, the pilot lands short of the runway and the airplane is destroyed, and the passenger is seriously injured, though the pilot escapes with minor scrapes and bruises.

Is the pilot legally liable for the passenger?s injuries and to the FBO for destroying its airplane? Explain.
