Pilot Licence ( Australia)

Wed Aug 15, 2018 8:41 am

Hey guys quick question
Is there a cheap way to get your Commercial pilots licence. As I am currently doing my rec pilots licence and want to move up and do my pilots licence but looking at the prices I just think my dream will never be reached . So any tips for me to help me out ?

I know just as much as you do, but i'm pretty sure you can get government funding.

Afraid not, there's no shortcuts.
You can shop around and find a country that it's cheaper to fly in (and is easy to convert) or knuckle down, work hard and try to bag a (rare) cadetship from an airline. But even with that, you'll still have to pay the cost of the ATPL back via your wage on completion.
