So South Korea has another start-up ? I thought the ones they had were struggling. Hope springs eternal:

So, in the midst of a crippling pilot "shortage" 😱, the Chinese are contemplating starting up more LCCs ?:

Interesting wrinkle on Starlux, a Taiwan start-up. Appears they're funding the cost to their ab initio pilots. However, not sure what "accommodated" means:

"Our cadets will be trained in the United States for approximately one year prior to receiving their Commercial Pilot License, followed by six months of airplane conversion training. All tuition and living expenses during training will be accommodated by STARLUX."

Also not sure what "training contract" means...work off the expenses over a period of years ?:

Admitted individuals shall sign a training contract with STARLUX to obtain the status of a cadet pilot.
