Please quit pretending the FAA will ever give an interpretation. They have already in the form of current written FAR’s. Stop embarrassing yourself by asking the ’union’ to read for you.

 Easy. two paragraghs, you can fly 8 hours carrying passengers around in a 14 hour day on shift! Simple so far? After that 8 hours stick time AND at 13.9 hours clock time. You CAN be given a flight part 91 for ANY amount of hours! Say 6 hours to reposition a machine to somewhere 500 miles away. ALL LEGAL if you have no passengers. Tomorrow, you can fly 500 miles back alone and it can still be Part 91.

 Of course that will make you timed out for 135 required rest. But suppose you arrive back at your base and another machine needs to go 1000 miles with no passengers. Yep! You are legal in Part 91,  paid, unpaid, 5 hours sleep, billed to outside hospitals? Doesn’t matter, it’s Part 91 flyin clock  hours and flight hours do not participate in this flight scenario.
