So it begs the question is their really a shortage of skilled people in Australia if this is the case?
I don't believe there is a driver shortage as such, there is more like a shortage of drivers that the Airlines want considering all their hairy fairy crap they desire, not who can do the job, big difference there !

EG: One of my F/O's on the jet we fly who is a good operator, around 30 yrs of age, knows his stuff pretty well & will one day make a good Capt when he gets the ATPL hours etc....BUT he can't get a look in at the Majors, he's tried but to no avail? Nope no shortage !
