Andrewwa, for a start get yourself into the Air Training Corps, it is a great place for a young pilot to start. You will get all the info you need there, and do yourself a service in mixing with other youngsters with the same ambition. Why a cadetship? Not possible to get a loan from the ol man and start your flying training now? Then go bush. Try Sling Air Kununurra, for starters. Most cadetships prefer you cannot yet fly, then they can do it they way from the beginning. And young Andrew, never give up. There will be times you have wondered what you have done, but it is worth it. Take this from a ol skipper who started in the airlines aged 19 years, and had not a bloody clue. Forty nine years later or so and 24,500 hrs, under my belt I would not change a thing. Go for it young fella, and enjoy your career.
