Compare that to a typical first 5 years at a regional.
ATP flight school don't advertise this option on their web site though do they?

If you found the only air ambulance job willing to hire you with less than 4,000 hours I suggest you take it, but the fact that you're comparing an air ambulance job to entry-level turbine jobs like regional airlines and Ameriflight demonstrates a lack of understanding of how this industry works.
