    I'm a former CFI that has built up just over 1,000 hours (900 SE, 100 ME). This was 10 years ago or so and I haven't flown since. I've been working as an Engineer for the last decade, but am thinking about getting back into flying. What would it take for me to get to a Regional these days?

    I've been in mechanical engineering for 3.3 years right after college and starting with Endeavor next month. It's been really tough choosing an airline that works and I can't thank everyone on here and APC with helping me make the right choice! But yes, get current and 500 hrs and you pretty much have a job (at least based on current needs/hiring) and don't forget to walk in with a good attitude (that sure helped me especially with two failures on my exams and one incident while CFI'ng)
