Aviation as a career.

Aviation commentators are all predicting growth in the aviation industry over the next two decades. Please read the following snippets from just two sources.

Analysis by the International Civil Aviation Organisation predicts that a combination of retirements and growth will open up more than two million global aviation industry jobs over the next two decades. …. This will see the number of pilots more than double to 980,799…. The last pilot shortfall saw international airlines raiding Australian domestic carriers which in turn were sucking pilots from regional carriers. (Extracts from an article by Steve Creedy published in The Australian March 18th 2011).

 

Boeing 20–year forecast has stated the airlines will need 466,500 pilots over the next 20 years to accommodate demand for new and replacement aircraft according to a Boeing Crew assessment forecast.(www.boeing.com)
