New ability for people to log SIC under Part 135:

"This program allows a pilot employed by the part 135 air carrier/operator and serving as an assigned second in command (SIC) in a multiengine airplane or single-
engine, turbine-powered airplane to log SIC flight time during operations that do not require a second pilot."

This may actually be a good thing and if done properly will not only open up a new path for young pilots to gain valuable, real world experience as well as enhancing safety in a segment of the market that is given to lowering costs by operating single pilot IFR with the inherently high workloads that can cause.

Electronic check transfers killed a huge training ground and while this will not fill all of that gap it could open up some new slots...
