US allies are trying to stop former military pilots from helping China

SYDNEY—Australia will review its rules aimed at discouraging former military personnel from aiding foreign adversaries as U.S. allies grow concerned that China has recruited Western pilots and benefited from their technical expertise.

Australian Defense Minister Richard Marles said an investigation into whether former Australian personnel had provided training to China had raised concerns that warranted a deeper examination of existing rules. He declined to say whether any individual Australians had helped China, but said some cases remained under investigation.
