I do not see any problem..Private plane, so you must be using a small local airport where you walk out hanger or tarmac. You carry out your own baggage on stowe it away yourself. Firearm is legal at point "A" and legal at Point "B", so take it with you, following most common transport laws (packed away, unloaded).

[url]www.packing.org[/url] Pretty sure with a private plane and airport you don't have to check and secure your firearm. Like a car probably. It's not like you're going to hijack your own plane.

The short answer is No Problem. In FL, in a car, a handgun must be "securely encased" which basically means anywhere so that you have to do something to get your hands on it. In a snapped snap holster (which is not on your body), a glovebox or a zippered bag is fine. It can be loaded and the contianer does not need to be locked. The part of the law that says this uses the term "private conveyance", so I think it would apply to a private plane too. You should be fine at parents' or friends' house too. Carrying it around on you in a public place (concealed) is illegal without a permit, unless you are going fishing, camping, hunting, or target shooting. Open carry is illegal unless you are doing one of the aformentioned activities. Non-resident carry permits are avaliable, but it's enough trouble that it isn't worth it unless you are going to be a regular visitor.

Why not get an out of state permit while you are there?

the st of fl reciproctes on cc permits from any state if you have one you all set.

ummm, no, Florida does not reciprocate with every state. We only accept permits of states that accept ours. Go here [url]http://licgweb.dos.state.fl.us/news/concealed_carry.html[/url] for the offical list. As for the out-of-state permits, it will take $117 and from about 40 days to 90 days to get one, plus the other little hoops to jump through. IMHO, it isn't really worth it unless you are going to be a regular visitor.
