I currently work for a part 135 operator and put in about 240 hours of duty time a month. I was wondering how much duty time a first officer does a month? I was thinking of making the jump if it is substantially lower. I appreciate everyone’s input!

Just looking at past schedules, without picking up anything extra, my duty time for any given month is approximately 120-150 hours.

Do you care about duty or time
Away from base?

300 hours TAFB would be a good rough ballpark for a regional pilot doing multi-day trips. Maybe less if you go home between back-to-back trips (ie live in base).
