Hi,
I was also in the Air Cadets, and I also wanted to be an airline pilot, but I couldnt becuase I am (apparently) colourblind.
I was just looking for the British Ariways sponsored pilot training scheme, but it has closed now! That meant that BA trained you for free, and you wirked for them as a pilot, but it was VERY competitive.
Others that I can think of off the top of my head take place in New Zealand and cost atleast £60,000.

Its not cheap!! and it is VERY difficult to enter in to, and obviously post 11 September, its going to be harder.

One thing you could consider is entering the RAF or Royal Navy as a pilot (youll need a degree) and when you stop working in the forces, you can go on as a commercial pilot then.
