If the minimums should be 5000+, then the pay should be cominsurate with the experience. And that’s not going to happen. It’s all about profit, and the HAA operators will pay the minimum. 

And how should that 5000 be broken down? Tour pilots in Hawaii can get that in 5 years.  But it’s day/vfr only. No night, no nvgs, no instrument time. Doesn’t make for a good HAA profile. 

Military could get instrument and nvg time. But it’s dual pilot in big aircraft and 300 hours a year. Sometimes tough to transition to a 407 that you fly by yourself. 

Civilian pilots? Well, it’s R22/44 to cfi to tours. Then paragraph two. 

No clear winner here.
