Hello All,

I have a BE300 type that states SIC required. Does that mean the SIC that comes with me must be typed in the Aircraft or can it simply be another multi engine pilot?

Please review 14 CFR 61.55. You have not provided enough info for anyone to give an accurate answer. Under what 14 CFR will the flight be under- Part 91 or 135? Will it be in the USA domestic airspace?

I have read 14 CFR 61.55 and if I understand it correctly, then the answer to my question is yes,I can use a mulitengine rated pilot as long as it is in the U.S. but thought I may have miss understood the information.

See the thread titled “Gulfstream IV SIC” this folder. Galaxy Flyer’s post #4 sums it up nicely.

Private, AMEL and Instrument Rating, Appropriate ground and flight training and basic aircraft familiarity per 61.55. No BE-300 SIC Type is required for domestic US airspace ops.

Ask yourself- Do You want that SIC to just sit on their hands/work the radios, or be a relevant and trained member of the flight crew in the event of an emergency?

Please read all of 61.55; it contains everything you need to comply with for the SIC to act as SIC. Yrs, they require annual training which apparently is too onerous for some.

Having a specific TR is different from meeting the 61.55 training and checking requirements.

Yes, I agree. Just wanted to make sure that I wasn’t miss interpreting the rules. The guy that will act as my SIC is very familiar with the plane and emergency. Just not SIC typed yet.
