Overseas pilots will be approved in Australia on working visas, for addressing the crisis of shortage, which is a threat the operations of planes.

The eligible occupations, meant for foreign workers, were curtailed in April, but from January 2018, pilots will be given access, after worries regarding the national shortage came to light.

The Aviation Association of Australia said that Peter Dutton, the Immigration Minister, has confirmed the above-mentioned change, to them, which presently seeks a 4 year visa period, instead of the two-year visa.

This proposal is aimed at attracting proper senior pilots, who have a family, which is growing up, and the need of the day is to make it smart enough for them, to move to Australia. For this, a period of four years seems good. It would also have a percolation effect, where major international carriers, will recruit from Australian carriers.

These overseas pilots would serve as trainers and mentors, to the Australian pilots. In the event of the present situation continuing, major services would be slashed.

Anthony Albanese, a spokesman of the opposition, stated that the skills shortages were a denunciation and failure of the government, in handling the aviation industry of Australia. Australia should create enough skilled pilots, to carry out services towards the domestic industry, and also possess the capacity, to train pilots for the world. It needs to become an export industry, to promote and benefit the national economy.
