They are already pretty close to taking the 2000 hour ATPs. Markets dictate everything here. We don't need turbine command time or a degree any more. I wouldn't be surprised if it got to the point...

Covid affected the inflation and stock bubble more than any president could dream of. WW3 I dunno, maybe Trump would have gone and given Vlad a good slap on the face and told him to cut the crap.

I think the US is probably objectively the greatest place in the world to be a pilot.
