Payments in lieu of training (PILOT)

For various reasons companies or groups may not be able to train their own cadets.  In these circumstances Department for Transport may allow them to pay PILOT.  Such payments may in any event need to be made as an end of period adjustment where, for instance, the company has time-chartered in a number of vessels during the year.
