It would be prudent for anyone thinking of doing a cadetship to take some lessons prior to joining one as it will give you an idea of whether youíll like it or not. But if you count up the cost of gaining a CPL, IR at an independent flight school plus all the theory training it can cost nearly as much as achieving it all via a cadetship. Plus the cadetship will be financially much better in the long run. Apply for all
you can first, and then Iíd pursue an independent training path afterwards if you arenít successful with the cadetships.
