Just wondering how someone gets a license with no flying hours....

A320 FO
Total all flying hours 279.63
Total flying hours on A320 279.63...

wonder did he get his license in India??
What's the issue?

In the UK this is the norm. I was a cadet with what is now one of Europe's biggest carriers and started on the 737 with less than 180 hours... It's about quality of training NOT a few thousand extra hours on Cessnas.

Whilst I don't pretend to be anything more than an average 777 skipper, starting out with low hours straight onto jets didn't seem to inhibit my progress in any way... In fact arguably working short-haul on a 737 / 320 flying many sectors each day is the probably the best grounding you could get before moving on to the bigger stuff, no?
