Why do you need more hours to qualify for regionals?

Wierd spot? Hardly! Your current flight time qualifies you for most (if not all) Regional airlines in the US. What specifically are you concerned about regarding your flight experience?

You are short 30 night hours, but:


Quote:
If you've performed more than 20 night takeoffs and landings to a full stop, you can count each additional takeoff/landing pair as one hour of night flight time - up to 25 hours of total night credit.
So rent a Cessna 152 for five hours and go on a stop and go marathon for a few nights. It'll cost you less than a thousand bucks. Then you can apply to any regional you want in less than a week.

Go to The 135 world in Alaska. Get some real single pilot experience before you loose the opportunity all together. Once you hit the 121 world, you'll never get that kind of boot camp again. Think about it.

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.

Why practice bleeding if you aren't a local who, granted, has it as part of his/her culture and loves it?
