Embattled SAA at risk of losing skilled pilots

"The aviation industry is facing a global pilot shortage - and SA's well-trained and highly experienced captains make for soft targets to be lured abroad.

SAA Pilots Association (SAAPA) chairperson Captain Jimmy Conroy says he fears the local airline industry and the country may lose a large number of pilots to international airlines.

"To compound this problem," Conroy says, "South African Airways (SAA) is currently not training any new pilots through its previously highly successful Cadet Training Programme."

Sounds like the opening gambit in a pay negotiation.
