Cessna 404 Titan - how many to crew it?

Recommended Posts

Wikki page shows 

 

Crew: 2

 

For some real world pilots what are the official FAA requirements to fly the Cessna 404?

 

I want to simulate flying it in an air taxi/charter capacity. Would this make a difference?

Single pilot for cargo flights, up to 9 passengers for passenger flights.  Ten or more passengers requires 2 pilots per FAA regulations.

Thank you for that! I'll make a note of that for the future.

Anything I can do to make it more "realer" the better.

I wonder if that is a recent change?  Pretty sure I flew in a single piloted Continental Express (I forget the actual name now) from SRQ to TPA around 2007/2008.  Air conditioning was turned on by opening the windows..   :smile: It was just my wife and I on it.  I did fly one time in a  404 from PRC to PHX with Mesa Airlines.  Pretty sure that was two pilots 

 

Edit:  I must of had my eyes closed when I read your post the first time.  So, two people (my wife and I) were ok.  The Mesa had at six of us on it, maybe more.

KSRQ TO KTPA  Man I did that same flight when I was in high school, would've been early 80's

 

It was me and another man, who was kinda creepy if I remember, he sat way in the back, the last seat and carried a briefcase and wore dark sunglasses and dressed in a suit. I sat up at the front row and had a great view of the cockpit. There were two pilots flying. However I do remember the co-pilot came on rather at the last minute, so I'm wondering if he was just getting a ride to tampa?  That was a great flight, lots of fun.

Some commercial operators may elect to always use a two man crew, possibly due to insurance requirements.
