First Army Unit had a 500 Hour Minimum in Country for PIC (about 750-850 hours total time)....or as seats opened up due to vacancies. Then new PIC's were paired with experienced much as possible. That generally meant about four to five Months in Country before moving up. We averaged about 100 hours flying per Pilot per month.
