fbi,

Correct but one does need enough to comfortably get him there. That number is a wild card but more is unquestionably better than less. Now, how to see that it's "more"...that's the question.

A Greencard is US Permanent residence. No need for a visa to live and work here.
US Majors do not look especially kindly on non US flying. There are plenty of ex Emirates & Cathy drivers siting right seat in RJs to build the 121 time the majors require. 135 time may help a little; but the easiest way is to join a regional.
Pay isn't too bad; joining bonuses can be >$20k. Live in base and there's plenty of money to be made.
I moved from a US regional to LCC in 3 years and couldn't be happier. Brand new Aircraft and great money compared to Europe.
Note as a G/C holder money earned in the sandpit is taxable in the US.. check with a tax pro.
PM for more..
Cheers!
