YEah - But raising by one year, I think this is basically a short term measure to get over the temporary shortfall of Captains in AI and may be IC as well.

Considering the Stringent conditions.It would be a very small help.Theres already a vast shortage of Pilots & AMEs and there are quite a few Airlines on the Horizon.
The concern is after Three years when the Boom stops & the Drop starts,Whats to be done with the Surplus staff.
