Skip to comments.No more white cadet pilots for SAA ( South African Airways )

Johannesburg - Cadet pilot training course applications from white men are no longer being accepted by South African Airways (SAA), it was reported on Friday.
SAA spokesperson Kabelo Ledwaba told Beeld that the cadet programme was being advertised online as an initiative to bring pilot demographics in line with the country's broader demographics.
"Only 15% of SAA's pilots are currently black, and this includes Indians and coloureds. The rest are white, and 91% of them are men."
Ledwaba said the airline would appoint male, white pilots when there were vacant posts for which applicants of other races could not be found.
Beeld had asked why white applicants were being rejected across the board.
An irate father had called the newspaper to complain that his son, who had a commercial pilot's licence and met the educational and physical criteria, had been rejected on the grounds of race.
By filling out several dummy applications, Beeld established that the online form had been programmed to reject any white applicants.

Reverse racism ping!
Who said that apartheid had ended in South Africa?
I’m not flying that airline - ever!
You mean you feel less safe when pilots are chosen on the basis of their race and skin color and not on the basis of their competence or experience?
Response: What do people expect? Of course once blacks take over they will favor their fellow blacks. Whites are the only race stupid enough to believe race is unimportant.
So, they are skimming the cream off the crop (code for white racism) and hiring less competent pilots (code for diversity) and everyone is happy. Well, except for the burned corpses, INCLUDING the diverse pilots.
EXACTLY what I was thinking!
The white South African government were idiots to let the natives take over, they THEY will be enslaved and butchered.
Maybe Little Steven and Paul Simon will have a concert to correct this injustice.
The last time those savages tried this on white farmers they all starved. Stupidity is bred into those idiots.
This isn’t reverse racism.
Our federal government has set a fine example for them.
If you want to fly with an airline that is managed as well as Detroit or Zimbabwe this would be the way to go.
Will Michelle 0bama fly on SAA after she leaves the White House? I hope so.
Every now and then someone will ask what EIEIO really stands for ~ well, here it is.
That didn't stop them. Sorta like Obama - it's the "right" thing to do... Doesn't matter if it doesn't work.
It'd be a pretty nice place if they'd all go home I suppose ~ at least the Sen people would ecstatic!
Oh please, you think if you’re a pilot that it’s because you’re so smart? There are lots of smart people out there (in the bush). You didn’t do that you’re just lucky.
New slogan: You didn’t crash that!
This is what “economic justice” ultimately results in. And sadly, we have a president who is obsessed with it.
Next comes the dumbing down of pilot training.
“Cadet pilot training course applications from white men are no longer being accepted by South African Airways (SAA), it was reported on Friday.”
Well, perhaps that may actually physically lower the level of performance, like by a few hundred meters. “we don’t need no stinking altimeters” may become the rule.
Don’t fly on SAAAA - South African Affirmative Action Airlines
Warning For America
From South Africa

It’s the epitome of left wing racism, because you have a country now totally dominated by a black majority. What possible basis is there to claim blacks are being discriminated against in such a country?
They really aren’t denying it’s because the black candidates aren’t qualified. Not using qualified airline pilots is like a monty python script about liberalism.
“Affirmative action airline pilots—what could go wrong?”
Memo to self: Add SAA to my no fly list!
And that’s just the result of them turning on the windshield wipers!
If I recall correctly, the west coast Aricans got there only about 300 years before the Europeans arrived.
Barry Soetoro, please pick up the white courtesy phone for new job to fail at.
The rejected people should come here and apply for training as Africans.
Affirmative action in the cockpit of an airline? OK,cool.But that airline is now officially on my own personal “no fly” list.
A buddy of mine was a technical security officer for the state department based in Moscow. He had to fly out to Vladivostok to certify the systems in the Consulate there. He told me that it was such an awful flight that he rode back to Moscow on the Siberian Express train.
The rejected people should come here and apply for training as MINORITY Africans.
” Whites are the only race stupid enough to believe race is unimportant.”
Take a look at our future America.
I hate to say it, but whites need to pack up and move. This is going to get a lot worse and likely won’t get any better. The next step is confiscating white property. There about a decade away from that.
Interesting commentary in the signals from the brink. Frankly, with His Excellency and his henchmen in control here, we have leaped into the same league as South Africa.
Ending question is will you know what to do? Just say, I and my family are prepared.
Psssttt....I've flown Egypt Air.Scary rides ain't all they're chalked up to be.
Sounds like we have ourselves some APARTHEID going on.
One of my European ancestors arrived there about 1620 or so on a boat bound for Indonesia. He reported in his diary that the native people had cattle with large horns. The Sen did not have cattle at that time, but the Nilotics did. Some people have told me there's enough information in what was in the diary to clearly identify them as Shone.
They can use the money they save hiring cheaper pilots to paint the planes with pictures of Bono!
OH, OH. Another airline to be avoided. Affirmative Action does little harm in the academy, where today’s students learn almost nothing in any case. But flying planes is a serious business.
Look to see the South African Government to run off or execute 77% of their pilots in the near future.
I wouldn’t fly that airline either with a policy like that.
I wouldn’t mind flying Aeroflot at least once. I do like scary rides................................. Make it real scary, fly with a Polish Politician on board.
