Default commercial pilot question

i am scheduled to start flying a private jet for a guy who just happens to have enough money to buy a Hawker 800XP... my question is this.. he is not going to charter the aircraft out at all and therefore no need for a 135 certificate and he doesnt want one, therefore, as the pilot for this aircraft, what are my limits by the FAA as far as getting paid to fly his aircraft under part 91?

It is at his/her discretion. Just make sure you review your Regs on Commercial Pilot Privelages (FAR 61.133). I flew a King Air for a short period for a 91 gig. It was a good time. Have fun bud, be safe...and if you need an SIC...I can get you my resume in about 2 seconds

We have beat the topic too death in the commerical checkride thread. Basically we found that, to be safe, just make sure you have a contract of agreement, then simply follow the Part 91 regs, and part 119 might have something to say about your private carriage operation. How'd you score this job? How much time do you have?

Wow thats impressive I thought I was low on hours when I got my commercial with 150 but 140 is impressive. I only wish I could find someone to let me fly their jet. Enjoy the experience. Oh also to add, from what I have been told by some DE's. If you are going to be logging that time in the jet you should have some dual time in that plane. They look very skeptically at someone who logs PIC or even SIC in a plane that they have not been instructed in.

flight safety beginning in late march will take care of that no problem... the PIC for this plane is already typed in the aircraft

How can you be a Comm. Pilot with only 150 hours, Part 61 or 141? And do you have your instrument also?

There's no way that UConn can have his Comm. Certificate with 140 hrs. 141 is at least 190, and 61 is 250????? Unless there is a loop-hole that I have never heard of?! Obviously he could potentially have his Pvt/Instrument...but certainly not Comm SE/ME addon at such low time...hmmm
