Here is a link to the new final rule which is in effect soon. These changes came about due to the accidents in Hawaii. It affects part 91 operaters much more so than part 135 but there are some other small changes in there as well. It would be a good idea to read it over.

The part that stands out in my mind is "(9) A private pilot acting as pilot in command has at least 500

hours of flight time;"

 

Shouldn't it be 500 hours of flight time as a pilot or pilot in command?

 

I have almost 2200hrs of flight time but only 34.7 of it is pilot time.
