Question: An air carrier that operates airplanes under 14 CFR Part 135 has shown interest in hiring me. The job is mine as long as I meet the Part 135 requirements for pilot in command under IFR. If I have 1,100 hours of total flight time, have I met the requirements?
Answer: No. 14 CFR Part 135.243 describes the minimum requirements for serving as pilot in command on an IFR flight. When it comes to total flight time, a pilot must have 1,200 hours. As well as having 1,200 hours, the pilot must also have at least 500 hours of cross-country flight time, 100 hours of night flight time, and 75 hours of instrument flight time. Source: FAR 135.243
Safety and Education
A Seattle pilot on a ferry flight from California to Maui deployed his airframe parachute near Hawaii and was videotaped by the Coast Guard.
It has an engine from the Golden Age of Aviation, an open cockpit, and a long-range cruise speed of about 90 mph. For the Seattle II, a Douglas World Cruiser reproduction, a brief first flight in December started a new chapter in a Seattle couple’s quest to fly it around the world in 2016.
Exhaust system design is critical to the ultimate power output of an aircraft engine. Regardless of improvements to induction air flow, compression, cylinder porting, or combustion timing, a poorly designed exhaust system will always limit the power that your engine can deliver.
