Riddle me this batmen. The King Air 300/350/1900 are on the same type certificate and are part 25 aircraft. Now, the type rating for the 300 and the 350 is the same and the 1900 is now a seperate type rating. So, when you get your 300/350 type you first do a "two-man" type rating and then do a "single" type add on with a V1 cut handflown to the ILS.

So, question #1: Why is there a two-man type for a single pilot airplane?

#2: If a pilot is limited to the two-man type what does the second man log and does the second pilot have to be typed?

#3: If a pilot is single man typed and chooses to fly two pilot what does the second log?


FYI: all three of our 350 guys are single typed and the airplane is flown single pilot, but we just had a guy get back from CAE and these questions came up.


Extra side note: Anybody watch Robot Chicken on Adult Swim? Awesome.

#1: It's not a two-pilot type rating; it's just a limitation that goes on your certificate "SIC Required." It's no different than the citations that can be operated single pilot.

#2: SIC required by regulation; right seat guy can log it as such. No type required in the U.S., just 61.55 training.

#3: SIC logs nothing under part 91 unless the PIC has an MEI. If the SIC is typed you could make an argument for sole manipulator vs acting PIC.

The 300/350 and 1900 are not Part 25 planes.

The 300 was certified underr SFAR-41C. That SFAR expired in 1991 and a new certification standard was released. This new standard, Part 23 Commuter Catagory, is what the 350 and 1900 were certified under.

With regard to the questions, the previuos poster has it right.
