    That is an good idea, recruiting Tamil pilots to Srilankans and start flights between Colombo and Kilinochchi, where LTTE has built their new Air strip. In case if needed one flight could be deviated to LTTE camp as well, like what happened to twin towers.

    In developed countries, there are so many pilots without jobs and pilots are losing jobs.

    Sri Lanka should have a pilot training school it is affordable and economical.

    Otherwise should hire foreign pilots. They would love to come to Sri Lanka for low salaries because of the weather.

    Why don`t they hire some private bus drivers as pilot? We have plenty of pilots, give them a chance.

    Apparently the prospects are better with Eelam airlines. Have any of these pilots applied for jobs there?
