Where the airline pays for your training and there is a seat in the cockpit waiting for you upon completion. You do not see this in the US, it is generally where flying is too expensive for the average person.

Well, many programs here in the US are ab-initio style, meaning there is no airline seat waiting for you at the end, but you'll go from "average man on the street" with 0hrs to a commercial pilot certificate.

Foreign carriers do this type of training, due to the low hiring pool. We used to conduct ab-initio training for China Eastern on the MD90, the training last forever, I think it was about 45 days of ground school & 20 simulator sessions.

Bzzzt...thanks for playing! It's simply training from zero experience. It's got nothing to do with who's paying for it.
