Full Part 135 Certification



Basic and Full operator part 135 certifications are the same as the single pilot certification process except they have additional manuals. The General Operations Manual and Training Manual, and for jet operators an Approved Aircraft Inspection Program or a General Maintenance Manual will be required.

Here is an overview of the differences of the 3 types of certifications:


The Basics

Certification requirements will vary with the size and complexity of the operation. All operators must have exclusive use of at least 1 part 135 aircraft, a pilot that meets the Part 119 experience requirements, and a Principal Base of Operations (PBO).


All First Time Applicants

We recommend reading the FAA's information page on Part 135 certification requirements and the information on this site. This will help you get familiar with the process, terms, and FAA procedures. In addition you must become very familiar with Part 135 of Federal Aviation Regulations, that goes without saying.


Basic and Full Part 135 Certification

These certifications require the Statement of Compliance, General Operations Manual, and Training Manual. Jet operators require either a General Maintenance Manual or a Approved Aircraft Inspection Program (AAIP). The FAA will also require proving runs.


Single Pilot and Single Pilot in Command Part 135 Certifications

Operators that only need one Pilot in Command have these options. They do not require the GOM and the TM. Jet operators have the option of having 2 Second in Command pilots.
