What Are the Part 91 Requirements?
For a private jet owner or operator to obtain Part 91 FAA certification, they must meet a specific set of criteria. These criteria range from pilot requirements and flight operation to standards for aircraft maintenance. These requirements ensure that the plane remains under safe operation.
In order to operate an aircraft under Part 91, the owner is responsible for ensuring that the pilot and flight crew meet the appropriate qualifications, like a designated amount of training and a familiarity with the aircraft manual. The owner should also ensure the aircraft receives routine maintenance and inspections, with an additional focus on maintaining safety technology onboard the aircraft. Meanwhile, the FAA mandates that owners keep all maintenance and flight records.
During flights, operators must follow specific procedures and have essential emergency equipment onboard. Operators should also have checklists onboard that specify necessary procedures crewmembers should follow throughout the flight. Part 91 also provides guidance on how to operate in various weather conditions and how to operate under visual flight rules (VFR) and instrument flight rules (IFR).
