Deano, it's a chicken and egg situation though. If the cadets and experienced pilots stopped signing up to this, then the company will have no option but to stop recruiting like this. But they don't and they move enmasse towards it. There is no incentive for the company to stop this and to break the chain would be very difficult now.

A combination of these schemes and greedy training schools has lead to everybody wanting to get a job at the expense of everyone else. And seemingly the best way to do this is to pay to get ahead.

What I hate, and can't stand, is the morally repugnant notion that a company with so much profit and such strong year on year performance, who could afford to fund the training easily, are exploiting this stream of pilots in order to achieve labour costs as cheap as possible.
