Seems to me the more iíve read about L3, the worse they become. Seems that when they were originally CTC they were a tonne better. If iím honest iím still unsure I can afford to do it, even though itís been my dream for years.

Training costs at £110,000 for the MPL license, without cost of food and travel just seems unobtainable for someone like me. Itís okay for people that have money that can afford it, but not all of us are as blessed. And loans compaines for pilots licensing require you to start paying back a month after you take the loan out with no payment holiday, so finding the money every month, on top of full time learning is virtually impossible.

I canít understand why airlines arenít offering to cover costs, and deducting from wages once youíre working full time. I know Aer Lingus did in 2018 for 10 Cadets and I bet they were people similar in position to me.
