    In the United States, different universities that have flight programs can actually get the 1500 hour requirement down to say 1000 hours. That 1200 hour to 1500 hour requirement was imposed as a recommendation from the NTSB after the Colgan Air regional crash in Buffalo, NY where they found that neither the captain nor the first officer slept in a bed the night before the flight. Yawns were even heard on the cockpit voice recorder. Sullenberger spoke about it essentially calling it ridiculous and that they just need to be paid better. The regional airlines deserve to be heavily criticized. They’re are so many testimonies of regional airline pilots in the U.S that make so little they can’t even get a place to sleep at night and end up in crash pads and the people at the regional airlines association deny that there is any problem. Horrible!
