    61.160(e) in regular English means you must meet the hours requirement of 61.159 except you can have a lower total pilot time and lower cross country time.

    Your friend needs 250 PIC time in an airplane and not powered lift to qualify. Reading section A again seems that he needs to be multi engine qualified in the armed service to take advantage of the rule.
