Phil and others here,
How hard is it for a small, single pilot helicopter operation to get
FAA Part 135 approval?

You get a big stack of Microsoft Word docs from someone else who has done it, edit lightly (change the names at least!) and submit to the FSDO. Then wait 4-9 months and you're done (though somewhere in the middle they will ask for some changes). We're preparing to go through this process soon.

Correct answer is GET IN LINE. FAA is way backed up.
