The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is using large sums of money to attract retired British pilots. French pilots are also among Beijing’s targets.

According to Vision Times, Australian and New Zealand pilots are also invited to learn Chinese, a platform for them to go to China for flight training.

The New Zealand Defense Force revealed that four of its retired pilots have accepted to serve in China.

Australian Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Richard Marles pointed out that the government was investigating China’s manipulation of retired Australian pilots.

China’s regime wants to find pilots with experience in taking off and landing on aircraft carriers to train personnel for its military.

French pilot Francois, 40, said a headhunting company is looking for pilots for China, and the promised salary is more than $19,000 (20,000 euros) a month.

Francois said that the CCP is not finding American pilots for its plans because U.S. intelligence agencies have recently been very wary of Beijing’s moves.

According to Francois, the CCP wants to recruit European pilots because it has no experience in wars with Western countries.

Francois shared that he turned down the high salary the Chinese regime offered because he thinks France and Beijing do not go the same way.
