There've been rumblings about SMS Regs coming to Part 135 operators. Listen in to get accurate information of what's actually in the sections of 14 CFR 5 as applicable to "States."
NOTE: This episode was recorded just prior to the 2023 FAA Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) (88 FR 1932), which directly addresses Safety Management System (SMS) requirements for “certain certificate holders and commercial air tour operators." As published on Jan. 11, 2023, the FAA proposed rule includes “commuter and on-demand operations, commercial air tour operators, production certificate (PC) holders that are holders or licensees of a type certificate (TC) for the same product, and holders of a TC who license out that TC for production."
