About 20 years ago you needed about 5000 hours to get an interview with a regional. Being offered a right seat in a Saab felt like a lotto win!

Today a 5000 hour pilot would be in the right seat of a jet close to command.

I think 20 years ago the Austronaut factor was a lot higher and I mean no disrespect to this.
