Interesting debate going on here in the comments about pilot training in the regional carriers versus the legacy airlines.
The article cites the new bill going through congress right now that all airline pilots have atp minimums. The thing most people do not know is that BOTH of the pilots had more than 1500 hrs.
That was a very interesting and very “deep” read by the poster. I would have to agree with most of his view.
You can’t teach experience.
The same hour flown 1500 times is little more than one hour of experience.
Ding Ding Ding… Well said!
