Minimums to fly a Citation?
Say, you want to fly for a executive charter operation that flys a few Citations and you have connections with the company like former flight training with the citation pilots, what are the minimums like ratings and hours you must have so you can take a right seat in the ciations or the B200? I'm assuming most citations are flown with 2 pilots, correct me if I'm wrong.

If you have a Far/Aim check out the 135 instrument SIC Mins. Off the top of my head I think you need 500 hours tt and a certain amount x-c and so on.
If you want to fly the citation. you have to find out what the companies insurance mins are. for jets there usually high but exceptions can be mad if you have connections. most citations require 2 pilots but some line a ce-500 only require one. you do not need a type to fly sic, but you have to have a legit 135 company check. you have to find out if this company hold their own 135 cert or some other co has it.

Most minimums are driven by insurance requirements. My company requires 2500TT/1000PIC/1000ME for SIC contract pilots. The Chief pilot has 5500TT, and I have 4200TT.

Most corporate operators also require that their FOs have type ratings for insurance purposes. All of the newer citiations require two pilots except for the CJ1/CJ2. You can get a single pilot waiver though by taking a checkride in the actual plane for all of the the CE-500 line (V, Ultra, Encore, Bravo)

They fly CJ1/CJ2 types.

At a minimum you need aircraft type education. You need to know normal and emergency procedures and aircraft systems. Even if you go uninsured the FARs require this education for pilots in the right seat.
