January 9 (Wed) 7pm- Air Taxi- What You Can and Cannot Do with Charters

Event Date: 
Wednesday, January 9, 2019 - 7:00pm

Charter regulations- where to begin?

Part 91 allows pilots to fly with the minimal regulations to keep everyone safe whereas Parts 135 and 121 is the opposite, since paying passengers are usually not aware of all the risks of flying.  

Private pilots may not be compensated in any way for their role as a pilot. Even pilots with a commercial certificate are limited to accepting payment for only a very small number of operations. Every year, both private and commercial pilots run afoul of regulations by inadvertently doing something that can be interpreted as acting as an air carrier. Part 135 is the section of the Federal Aviation Regulations that oversees Air Carrier Operations, and as most pilots don’t want to get anywhere near it unless he or she is actually working for a Part 135 air carrier operation.

Join Ben Taber of Dreamline Aviation has he reviews what pilots can and cannot do and how to stay out of trouble. Capt. Bennett Taber is a check airman and training captain with over 20 years and 16,000 hours of air charter experience throughout the western United States.
