Fractional Operator Plans To Go Part 135

Flight Options CEO Kenn Ricci plans to obtain Part 135 approval for the  Cleveland-based fractional provider. Ricci explained that the “differences in the [proposed] Part 91 Subpart K and Part 135 are few, and we decided to go the extra few yards to go Part 135.” So far only a handful of the flight crews are trained to Part 135 standards, Ricci said, but they will all be trained to such standards by the time Subpart K comes into effect, which he estimates will happen by the end of next year.
