Yeah well ok but in the UK when I sat my exams in the 80's you had to prove you had successfully attended/studied a CPL/ATPL ground school course prior to taking the UK exams and you had to provide firm ID such as Passport...so theoretically the detailed abuse from NZ would not have been possible...shame as I would have been the Einstein of CPL exams if it were...and a whole lot richer :E

Absolutely its one of the major headaches for student loans when you get someone saying ...................
"Money is not a problem. I will spend what I have to to get my (pilot's) licence - even if it takes all the government's money," Lenaghan told the Star-Times.

"I'm not worried about paying the money back. I don't even think about it." :\
