Can someone tell me if there are FAA regulations on limits to size of aircraft that can be flown without copilot?
Thanks,


#2

Yes. Someone can.

(most jets and most everything heavier than 12,500lbs)

:wink:


#3

Good answer you someone. . . :stuck_out_tongue:


#4

14 CFR 25.1523

14 CFR 25 Appendix D


#5

MOST Airplanes over 12500 lbs will need a crew of 2 or more but some can still fly with just 1 as long as you have the proper equipment and rating to do so (see FARs), a Cessna 560 Citation V or Encore can be single pilot and take off at 16500lbs but a old lear at 10000lbs might need 2 pilots and the C560 without the proper rating would also need 2 pilots.
So you would need to be a little more exact about what plane.

Thats basically what I said in my response

“most jets and most everything over 12,500lbs”

Maybe nobody reads the fine print anymore. :confused:
