So, I need to check to see if the company that I'm interested in has an SIC program & pass the their checkride? Correct? If they do, then it's all gravy. Then, I would be able to log the SIC time towards my TT. Now, when the a/c empties and it's just me and the other pilot, then I could easily jump in the left seat (as long as I'm typed for that a/c) and fly as PIC? Right?

If not, and the operation only requires one pilot as you stated above, then I'm just there for the experience of seeing how that particular a/c is flown? Right?
