Is there kind of a certain limit rule?

The Beaver . . .was a very good airplane

The rules get fairly in-depth, however what I guess could be described as the basic rule is found in CAO 48.1 Paragraph 1.4: "An operater shall not roster a pilot to fly in excess of 8 hours flight time in any 1 tour of duty". BUT, this then gets expanded on, and there are a bunch of exceptions (basically along the lines that the more flight or duty time, the more rest time required in between). To my knowledge, there is no limit on the number of actual flights that can be conducted. To answer the SIN-JKT and return question, under Australia rules, it could be done.
As well as daily limits, there are also limits on the ammount of flying which can be done in a period of time (30 hours in a 7 day period, 100 hours in a 30 day period, 900 hours in a 365 day period).
|Quoting Woodreau (Reply 14):|
For 2 pilot crews: no more than 8 hours without a required rest period (which means you can be on duty for 16 hours within a 24 hour period); for a single pilot crew: no more than 8 hours of flying in a 24 hour period.

And i've seen russian freighter crews do 36 duty hours in a 48 hour period.

How would you compare the flight characteristics and STOL behavior of the Beaver to a Helio Courier?

The one for the agency will be perfect, the one for themselves will be twice as thick.
