I agree no pilot should be allowed to carry revenue passengers in part 121 operations with only 250 hours. In the same note I have sat in the sim with a military F16 guy and watched him crash a V1 cut due to wrong rudder input more than once. A good pilot is a good pilot and bad pilot is a bad pilot no matter where he/she has learned.
wow, some of the comments below the article are brutal!
" commuting the day or night before a flight and then getting into the cockpit is far scarier than a 250 hour co-pilot who, unless the captain collapses, essentially has no more serious responsibility than putting the wheels up and down when told to do so."
