Single-Pilot Operator: Our Single-Pilot Operator website provides forms and examples for you to self-prepare FAA documentation in order to become a single-pilot Part 135 operator. Features include:

One single-engine or multi-engine aircraft.

One pilot crew.

Single Pilot-in-Command: This is a step up from the single-pilot operator and allows up to three copilots to be used in the operation.

Typically operators have one single-engine or multi-engine aircraft, but this is not a limit.

Pilot-in-Command and up to three Second-in-Command pilots.

No General Operations Manual required.

No Training Manual required.

No Director of Operations required.

No Chief Pilot required.

Director of Maintenance may be required for turbine-powered aircraft.

Basic 135 Operator: The Basic 135 Operator certificate is the same as Full 135 Operator; except, the Director of Operations and Chief Pilot can be fulfilled by the same person. There is a limitation of no more than 5 pilots and no more than 5 aircraft. It is possible for a Full 135 Operator to get a waiver allowing the two positions to be combined thus alleviating the need for this level of certification.

Full 135 Operator:

Exclusive use of at least one single-engine or multi-engine aircraft.

There are no restrictions on the number or type of aircraft.

There are no restrictions on the number of pilots.

A General Operations Manual and Training Manual are both required.

A Director of Operations and Chief Pilot are required.

The Director of Operations and Chief Pilot can be combined for non-turbine powered aircraft upon approval of a waiver and as long as the operation is simple.

Director of Maintenance is required.

Optional Authorization:

Minimum equipment list (optional).

Extended over-water operations (optional).

Canadian Foreign Air Carrier Certificate (optional).

Fast Track:

Excellent for large aircraft owners who need to generate revenue in the shortest time possible.

Purchase a Full 135 Air Carrier and be fully operational within weeks.
