Default Best reference material for Part 135?

Hey guys, I was looking to do a little 135 study as an interview prep so I am familiar with 135 operations. Can anyone recommend a good text that covers the basics?

Thanks

Not to be a wise ---, but 14 CFR Part 135 is probably the best place to start...

SB -

ShepardAir.com seemed to have great prep for all tests and interview prep also. I just used their study material for my ATP written and was very impressed.

And you might try posting the question under the 135 section.

Everything Explained for the Professional Pilot. The book is not cheap but it is the best overall aviation reference ever!!! You can get it at any major pilot shop online for about 60 bucks

Ditto, a great review book for 91, 91k, or 135. Or, for us older farts who can't remember all of the stuff we used to teach to our students 25 years ago!

Heres a great source

http://austincollins.com/archive.htm

http://austincollins.com/fex.shtml

The first link is about 135. The second is about flying at Flight Express.

Austin Collins is the Director of training at Flight Express and he posts all the training material you need to pass his class there. I believe he wrote it all and its very easy to understand everything 135. If you go to FLX you need to print it all off and take to class.

Also "Everything Explained for the Commerical Pilot" is the best reference book for flying out there. I think its about 50 dollars but well worth the price.
