End of Virgin Australia cadet program?

Last month Virgin Australia advertised positions for second officers on their Boeing 777 fleet. The minimum requirements were 1,000 total hours, 500 multi-engine and 500 PIC.

Obviously this move will save Virgin Australia money training new cadets plus it puts pilots in the airplanes much faster than the 18+ months for a new cadet.

Do you think they will bring back their cadet program?
