So true. BTDT....

Single pilot 135 cargo should pay twice what widebody CAs make. Those who have done it, know why...

Longest duty day I’ve had in 10 years was 14 hours. 90% are under 10.

Well it wouldn’t be wise to say you’ve had a 135 duty day over 14 hours

I think he is implying 121 can be longer, 16, sometimes 18 on reserve.

Maybe he's 91? Why does everyone thing "Corporate" = 135? Corporate is 91, Charter is 135.

Depends, Ive flown 135 and for sure have had legal duty days way past 14 hours. Legal to start is a big thing. Now, what you do with it once you are in the air....

Maybe he is. I said that because the conversation prior was about 135. Ive done both corporate and charter, the differences do not escape me

As stated in previous post, expect additional responsibilities and say yes Sir|Mam (as captain, you ever been told by an XO of a company “why are my lemo’s tires polished up and my jet tires look dull”— hint- get approved brightener and getter done).
But, the catered cheese/meats and other deserts are amazing!

Exactly, corporate is part 91 which is what I’m referring to.
