Sorry, flight time is a composition of more than a few things, flying is just one small component, judgement and decision making skill are just a couple of others. Those deep stall guys weren't exactly inexperienced in aviation, but their inexperience was in just the wrong places. Right after the stall/splash event we did similar training, the process was interesting to say the least.
BTW, this job is a blue collar endeavor, of the last few guys I have flown with were a couple were, H.S. Grads with no college experience, they both were some of the better F/Os I have flown with. If it takes 4 years to be a journeyman heavy equipment operator, it follows that being an airline pilot would take at least the same approx time.

Go tell an insurance company that hours don't matter. You got license X, so good 'nuf.
