ARLINGTON, TEXAS – The top Republican on the U.S. House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee ruled out any changes to the 2013 rule that mandated 1,500 flight hours to meet the qualifications for an Airline Transport Pilot certificate, which industry leaders say has made hiring pilots at regional airlines acutely difficult.
“The truth of the matter is we won’t touch 1,500 hours, it’s gonna stay right where it is,” said U.S. Representative Sam Graves, who is the ranking member of the committee that has oversight over the Federal Aviation Administration, its upcoming reauthorization and the statutory policies that drive its regulatory work.
