As far as daily limits its 8 hours between rest if you are flying 121, as a flight instructor its 8 hours, and i have no idea about 135.
It depends on what kind of 135. My airline is a Part 121 carrier but is allowed to use the 135 duty/time regs (b/c we are in Alaska. Why? I don't know). I believe its the unscheduled 135 rules. Basically we can fly (for a two crew aircraft):
1400 hours maximum per year
10 hours of flying max in 24 hours
14 hours maximum duty per 24 hour period
10 hours minimum rest per 24 hour period
And there is a minimum number of days off per quarter (in the range of 15 days) which I haven't looked at in a while because I've been lucky enough to get much more time off than that. Layovers, we don't do those either, I'm home every night, which is nice because up in these parts, you don't want to stay at an outstation overnight if you like running water...
