China Is Trying to Recruit You

Must read

SUBSCRIBER+ EXCLUSIVE REPORTING — The U.S. and its allies in the “Five Eyes” intelligence-sharing community – Britain, Australia, Canada and New Zealand – warned Wednesday that China is engaged in a global campaign to recruit Western pilots to train its own aviators.

In a rare joint bulletin, the five nations said that China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) was using several global companies in the recruitment campaign, with the aim of helping Chinese pilots “overcome their shortcomings.” The bulletin warned that the PLA was tapping the “skills and expertise of these individuals” to improve its own air operations.
