Maybe one or two of the Aer Corps pilots tune in here. They might confim my understanding of the situation.

Why is it so hard to become a pilot nowadays?
Thousands do not apply for the Air Corps. In 2003 1,111 applied to all the cadetships (Army, Navy and AC) with 71 cadets accepted, in 2002 1,047 people applied to become a cadet (Army, Navy and AC) and, again 71 were accepted. This 71 was broken down into Army, Navy and AC. In 2004 the intake was ten cadets to the Naval Service, 51 cadets to the Army and six cadets to the Air Corps totaling 67 with 916 applying to all cadetships.
Lets not frighen any potential applicants away by saying thousands apply when in fact its between 300-400 for the Air Corps.
