increase the salaries to avoid pilote shortage!

I understand many students are not interested to invest in the huge cost and difficulty of training when the salaries they could expect later are not that high…Or simply really low…

The airlines are short of pilots ? Well, why don’t they start paying for the training of their own ab initio students ?

And to keep and attract good, rated, experienced Captains and FOs, why don’t they increase their salaries, Terms and Conditions ? They prefer buying new airplanes and watch them idle on the apron ?

About China, why do they make an insanely difficult Medical ? An insanely difficult sim check ? An insanely difficult amount of paperwork to fill ?

There is no shortage of pilots for the airlines that really pay and respect their cockpit crews. And they’re not only national carriers…
