They are already pretty close to taking the 2000 hour ATPs. Markets dictate everything here. We don't need turbine command time or a degree any more. I wouldn't be surprised if it got to the point...

I have all the hope in the world that an E3 can blaze a trail for flow to a legacy, but I'll believe it when I see it. Their unions are already hellbent against the E3 and don't even have any in...
