Can positioning legs to pick up passengers be operated under FAR Pt 91 or must the operator adhere to Pt 135 rules? This is NOT a duty or crew rest question, rather must the crew adhere to the Pt 135 60% landing distance rule when positioning to an airport for a passenger pick up?

Our company manual explicitly states the Part 135 regs from which we have relief when repositioning the airplane, the 60% rule being one of them.

The 135 outfit I used to fly for did these legs completely pt 91.

Should say what can be considered part 91 somewhere around the compliance statement in your GOM
