Is FAR 135 coming?

Recommended Posts

All of these things sound pretty much the same as CAA Part 115 that all commercial skydiving in New Zealand has operated under for the past 5 years or so, all in response to 9 fatalities in a jump plane following engine failure shortly after takeoff.

As there was no available manifest/operational software available to perform slot specific w&b for each load, I developed the operational software for my mates drop zones to manage all of these requirements regarding w&b, recurrency, CAA reporting and much more.

Since doing that 4 years ago, I certainly look differently at short body Caravans and PAC750s trying to board 16 jumpers and a pilot. It's a very rare load that I can keep 17 bodies on those aircraft within COG limits.
