HPOUND created the topic: Flight time limitations (Old 48.1)
I am reading paras 1.14 through 1.16 of the Old 48.1, as follows:
1.14 A pilot shall not fly and an operator shall not roster him or her to fly as a flight crew member in excess of 900 hours in 365 consecutive days.
1.15 A pilot shall not fly and an operator shall not roster him or her to fly in excess of 100 hours in 30 consecutive days.
1.16 A pilot shall not fly and an operator shall not roster him or her to fly in excess of 30 hours in 7 consecutive days.
In 1.14, the condition "as a flight crew member" is added. What is the significance of this? What is this condition included for 1.14 but not 1.15 and 1.16?
Does it mean, for example, a pilot who flies as a passenger MEL/SIN/LHR rtn for a vacation would need to count this time under 1.15 and 1.16, but not 1.14? Perhaps deadhead transportation would be picked up by 1.15 and 1.16, but not 1.14?

I think you can safely assume that the phrase "a pilot shall not fly" means that he/she is acting as a flight crew member. I can't imagine that any pilot would be likely to fly 100 hours in 30 days as dead-head transportation! That would be a very strange company to work for..
