What does that have to do with the time of the crash? He had thousands of hours then and a type rating. Don't get me wrong, I'm very much in favor of the 1,500 hour rule, but not because of the Colgan crash. That was just the opportunity to push it through.Negative. The captain paid his way in to the right seat at Gulfstream with less than 300 hours. He was then hired at Colgan with about 650.
