Maybe have a read of this thread: Fresh Grade 3 Instructor with $120,000 debt. Driving street sweepers...

There are several other similar threads here within the last 3 months or so if you go back and take a look.

You want them to research without doing anyone giving away the answers straight away?

Hunter Valley Aviation (BASAIR)

I am looking into CPL courses and I'm looking for some thoughts on Hunter Valley Aviation and their Diploma courses. I would also like to ask for peoples' thoughts on VET student loans also and is it a good option to go?

I see that basair also offer a combined course for CPL and MECIR that can all be covered under VET loans but from what I calculate is that this when end up having a greater debt than if I done the courses separately so probably better doing them separate unless there is a greater benefit for me doing the combined course?

Just my thoughts... probably not the best time in aviation history to be taking on a huge debt to fund a dream of flying. But then glass half full view, eventually there will be a bounce back and demand. Tought call if anyone is in your shoes. Personally if it was me, I would start slow and self fund to give me time to get to PPL and see where the industry has moved in that time.
