We received a few questions about how the financial portion of this cadet program works so here it is… Virgin Australia will pay for your training up to your Private Pilot Certificate then you can fund the rest which is $74k using FEE-HELP. Virgin holds you to a 3 year commitment on the ATR’s while you repay their portion of the loan at 15% reduction in pay which is not too bad.
The only thing is that $74k. Just like any other loan, it is on you to pay it back. Be sure to check out http://studyassist.gov.au/sites/studyassist/helppayingmyfees/vet-fee-help/pages/vet-fee-help to learn more about FEE-HELP.
