Did the Asiana Airlines plane crash correlate to pilot flight hours?

After many news reports and a National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) video focusing on the July 6, 2013 plane crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214, we now know that the pilot who was landing the Boeing 777 logged only 43 hours on that particular aircraft. We also know that the pilot was still considered “in training” on the 777. The question remains, does the amount of pilot flight hours relate in any way to an increased likelihood of a plane crash? This, along with other factors, is what the NTSB continues to investigate this week at the plane crash site located at San Francisco International Airport. Asiana Airlines, based in Seoul, Korea, says it requires pilots to log 60 hours of training in order to man the Boeing 777. More information on the Asiana aviation accident will be available in the days and weeks to come.
