Think TSA is desperate enough to hire me with 200hrs total?

It was a joke. Im from the STL area and all three of my instructors have been hired by TSA. One with 500tt and the other two with just under 1000tt. I will have my CFI in about a month. Ill probably send in a resume when I have around 500tt.

Because he believes that a 500tt person does not belong in a 121 aircraft.

He is fully entitled to his belief, but the thousands of pilots that have been hired by 121 carriers under 500 hours total time with a PERFECT SAFETY RECORD would challenge his point of view.

Trans States has hired quite a few pilots between 450-600hrs that I know personally and between them there was not a single training failure. The same unfortunately can't be said for a few others with more than 1000 hours of dual given, mostly VFR TOLs in a Cessna 150. Quality, not quantity, of experience makes the difference in the 121 environment. The number in the TT column of your logbook is just a way to 'keep score' if your background & knowledge is solid.

And for the record, I was hired into my current job well over 500tt.
