Really? In my experience I would have to disagree. I would think that the 5000 hr guy would have a bit more air sense and SA about him than a 200 hr guy. Most of the students that I fly with have about 230-260 hrs starting out (those that we call CAT I). CAT II students come from a different community (sometimes even helos) and may have thousands of hours. They are both flying a new airplane for the first time, but the couple of thousand hour guy certainly has an advantage in the SA, DM, CM, AD/FX parts of CRM at a minimum.
