Once certified, The Ison Law Firm can assist your company or operation in the task of remaining compliant with the Federal Aviation Regulations, as well as acting as liaison between your company and the FAA, producing additional manuals and programs, offering crisis management, assisting in aircraft maintenance and large inspections, mediating department management matters, and the recruiting of pilots and other personnel.

Becoming a certified Part 135 operator with the FAA is a tedious and complicated task. You can expect to invest hundreds of hours into the certification process. However, your aviation attorney at The Ison Law Firm will attempt to make the certification process as quick and painless as possible, while still maintaining superior operational safety standards. The Part 135 certification process is broken down into 5 phases: 1) Pre-Application; 2) Formal Application; 3) Document; 4) Demonstration and Inspection; 5) Certification. Each phase of the certification process requires attention to detail and careful strategy and preparation. The certification process may be slightly different based on what type of Part 135 certification your company seeks.

Part 135 certificates are broken down into 3 broad categories: 1) single-pilot operator; 2) single pilot-in-command; 3) full. The single-pilot operator is designed for one pilot and one airplane. The most difficult task in single-pilot operator certificates is most likely drafting a successful Certificate of Compliance. Single pilot operators may not be required to comply with all regulatory requirements for manuals, training programs, and management positions. Single pilot-in-command operators are somewhat similar to single pilot operators; however these certificates are designed for airplanes that require two pilots. As such, this certificate will allow your operation to utilize up to three second-in-command pilots. A full certificate requires more documentation and more work throughout the application process; however full certificate holders have the least restrictions on operations, number of pilots allowed, and number of aircraft allowed.
