I heard that this one filed a flight plan. Too bad, they were doing great up until then.

<quoted text>Which brings me again for the 3rd time to my question for all you pilots out there, is 400 hrs enough flight time to safely operate an RJ? Anyone have an answer for me? How much flight time is required at regionals now? And about my contract, don't worry...lol...the company is in the process of getting a new one for us as we speak.:-( But did you know that even United's per diem is only $1.50 per hr? I was shocked.
I would rather fly with a 400-hour pilot in an RJ than a 400-hour pilot in a King Air. As far as piloting skill, flying a twin recip or turbo-prop is much more demanding than a light or medium jet.

That said, all 400-hour pilots are not created equal. Some have more MEL, night, and instrument experience.
