Dude get a grip. In the early 90's the progression went: Instructor, Charter 135, Regional, major. Regionals were looking for 2500 total time. So don't bitch about paying your dues. 850 is a good start, but there are thousand of pilots out there who did a lot more. You should feel fortunate that many regionals have such low time. A little perspective goes a long way.

Perspective does go a long way. But the perspective in a 152 in a 45 degree bank for 8 hours a day sucks any way you slice it after 850 hours.

Get your resumes out there, concentrate on your instrument students and skills, and try to keep a good attitude. This business has changed a lot since the early 90s, and though the first step to a regional has gotten easier, every step after that has gotten harder - and has substantially less financial reward.

850 hours? Back in my day, 850 hours got you a job flying skydivers...and you liked it. We also had to walk to and from the drop zone and it was up hill both ways, the snow was as high as the telephone wires, we also used to keep baked potatoes wrapped in tin foil in our pockets to use as hand warmers. We only made 20 dollars a month back then, so thank goodness tap beers were only a quarter! Jeeze, buy you kids books and send you to school...
