    Are you talking about minimum time?  The answer depends on what categories and classes you already have on your commercial certificate.  The applicable FAR is §61.63 and is broked down to adding a new category (ie… airplane, rotorcraft, powered lift) or adding on a class rating to an existing category (ie… ASEL, AMEL, helicopter)
    If you already have an airplane category (ie ASEL) there is no minimum time.  If you do not have an airplane category already listed (ie only rotorcraft-helicopter) you must comply with the minimum times found in §61.129(b)
