I don't think so, Duck Pilot. From what I have heard (and this is a rumour network) the shineys still prefer twin time over turbine time.

A bloke I know had 500 hours single pilot, mainly night, some IFR, on PC12, 200 hours on twins, and took a desk job hoping for Conquest time to get more twin time. Now at Skippers (or similar).

I agree with Ipahlot - there has been some small movement in the ranks. Airlines getting Fatigue & Management Systems in place (I know some have had them for a while), employing second officers due to the rumoured requirement to have 2 flying crew in the cockpit at all times...

I could be wrong - it has been known to happen....
