However, due to the limited size and scope of these certificate holders, specifically limited deviations from these requirements may be approved by the FAA. The path to a high-paid career in aviation as an airline pilot is expensive in large part due to the tedious effort. If you`re about to make that commitment, the ideas above can provide another way to move forward to put a good time in your logbook that hopefully won`t break the bank. There are more than 2,000 Part 135 charter operators in the U.S. Various brokers I know focus on several hundred that they believe have operating standards well above government requirements. An applicant or operator shall have the exclusive use of at least one aircraft that meets the requirements of at least one type of operation. The applicant must own or lease for an uninterrupted period of 6 months from the date of certification to meet the exclusive use requirement. The applicant may begin the certification process with a letter of intent indicating that an aircraft will be purchased or leased, but under no circumstances will the certification process be completed until it has provided a suitable aircraft. (d) A replacement who has not met the equipment experience requirements set out in point (c) of this section for more than six calendar months shall re-update the instrument under the supervision of a qualified flight instructor in accordance with § 135.338 or a qualified test pilot in accordance with § 135.337. In order to restore the timeliness of the instrument, a second commander must go through at least the following operational areas necessary for the practical testing of instrument evaluation in an aircraft or FSTD representing the aircraft category in order to restore the instrument experience requirements: for the consumer, this in turn favours large operators who are in a better position, to have qualified pilots available who would have dormancy requests that would have forced a delay in your flight. For the applicability and specific requirements of the security program, see 49 CFR Section 1544.101(a) to (i). Yes.

Your friend who owns their aircraft has different and lower requirements depending on the manufacturer`s performance specifications, including runway length. Part 135 operators have stricter limits, so some of the airports to which they fly with the same type of aircraft, a Part 135 operator cannot. Previously, pilots could only record SIC time if they acted as CIS in an aircraft requiring two crew members, either because of its type certification or the rules applicable to the flight. Now, under FAR 135.99(c)(2), pilots can record SIC flight time in a multi-engine or single-engine turbine aircraft through an FAA-approved SIC Professional Development Program (PDP), even if two pilots are not required by type certification or regulations. The responsible pilot must meet certain requirements, but unlike the original version of the proposed regulatory amendments, the PIC does not need to be a Part 135 flight instructor for CIS time to be recorded by a SIC PDP program. The correctly recorded SIC time can be applied to the total flight time requirement of 1,500 hours for ATP certification and can also be recorded to some of the specific ATP flight time requirements, including those of FAR 61,159(a)(1) to (4). However, the CIS time saved under a PDP may not be taken into account in the 250-hour PIC time in FAR 61 159 (a) (5), where the pilot must be a required crew member. To be certified as a Part 135 Standard Certificate holder, an applicant must appoint the individuals who will hold the positions of Director of Operations, Chief Pilot and Director of Maintenance. The specific experience requirements for these positions can be found in Part 119.71 of 14 NHQ. When applying for certification as a holder of a “Basic” or “Single PIC” certificate, a candidate may request a waiver for certain management positions. For more information on mismanagement, see FSIMS AC Order 8900.1, Volume 2, Chapter 4, Section 6, Paragraph (B) 2-463 and 8900.1 Volume 2, Chapter 2, Section 3. Except as provided in section 135.3, this subsection prescribes the requirements for flight crew members for operation under this Part.

Contact the aeronautical engineering specialists at the AOPA Pilot Information Center at 800-USA-AOPA (872-2672) or the lawyers for the AOPA Legal Services Plan offered as part of pilot protection services ( —SD The FAA imposes only minimum requirements, and many Part 135 operators have operating standards that exceed them. For example, Part 135 requires strict timelines for pilot service, drug and alcohol testing, pilot background checks, and various safety requirements for aircraft operation and maintenance.
