Noticed on that website where they'll get you a 135 ticket for $600 (single pilot/plane) it says that particular certificate doesn't require 1200 hours for the pilot.

Anyone know what reg pertains to that? I must be looking in the wrong place.

I think they are referring to the 500 which would limit you to VFR135 only, a market that is pretty limiting.
Just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Thanks! Seems weird that they wouldn't say "for VFR..." but oh well.

Looks like I win that bet!

Tis' about time!

There is no way to circumvent the 1200 hr IFR requirement.

I would think that in the soutwest where there is a lot more VFR wx that you could make a small niche for yourself in the VFR biz.

Can you copy and paste the text of that article for us guys that don't subscribe to AOPA?

Tried...it's too long. If anyone wants it, drop me a PM and I'll e-mail the body of the text to ya.

...and thanks all! I've been discussing this with a guy I went to Airman with and having the "there's no way that's legal" "well, mini...if it says so on the website" discussions back and forth for a while now. I was almost convinced that I was missing something buried somewhere in 119 or 135...thanks again.
