Many many years ago , before i was a pilot, i was fired from my job. Just like that. It was painful, humiliating and embarassing. But i learnt my lesson.

Airlines have been recruiting hundreds of cadets, P2F and self sponsered 200 hour guys for quite a few years now. These pilots have not experienced redundancy, furlough, airline collapse overnight. The Y generation of wannabes dont read contracts . Why would you , life is so good and young inexperienced pilots are sought after everywhere. These guys have not suffered the pain . They have not learnt the hard way that in contracts , terms and conditions small print are as inportant as what shiney new type you may be flying next week.

As always buyer beware
