Maybe because nobody thinks REX will even exist next year.

Apologies to add to the millions of these posts.

Anyone heard anything regarding the Rex 026 intake? AAPA website says they'll start in Oct 2020 but Rex says Early 2020 - assuming either the 'rona or just not being needed on mainline caused the pushback.

Personally submitted an application about 6 weeks ago and still haven't heard anything, refraining from calling just yet as the application confirmation specifically said not to. Hopefully get through to at least WOMBAT but we shall see.

Personally wouldn't go anywhere near pilot training given the current climate, especially with over 100k on the line...

There sure doesn’t seem to be any let up in the way the current training is going..constant Rex aircraft up and about daily around the Riverina to and froing from town to town.
i know that doesn’t answer your question directly

When the next upswing occurs after this downturn you won’t be given a 12-18 months heads up to start your training. Those who start their training 12-18 months prior to the upswing beginning will be best positioned to ride the crest of the next wave, but that means committing to a large sum of money at the same time no one is being employed.

My guess is not in 1 year, but 2 years from now demand will have picked up again and pilots will be required in numbers at the regional level. If you can commit to the training now and possibility support yourself through alternate employment for 6-12 months after the course if no airline work is available then it may be a good idea to start training now.
