Hard to see any issues with the FTA program , $75K (including food & accom) , 8 months , funds taken in 7 or 8 roughly equal payments
You are going to have to pay upfront , or be able to gaurantee payment in some way (ie: VET) just do it in smaller chunks
Am sure the Unis & pumping up the volume about pilot shortage in 3 years - what else would they say

There would have to be at least 1500 or so Australians who were flying OS who have returned (could be up to 2500)

Then possibly a whole lot more to be let go at CX, Then 800 or so made redundant by Virgin / Air New Zealand, then 1000 + still stood down at Qantas

Some of these guys/girls are younger than 62, 63 , many in their 20s , 30s , 40s - so they aren't going away anytime soon

No road map
