Pilot Shortage, 90,000 Pilots need in the next 20 years !!!
In the next 20 years, the demand for pilots will reach unprecedented levels creating tremendous employment opportunities for new pilots. The demand will be driven by the aging pilot pool and world economic growth requiring the need for additional air travel.
Why is there a pilot shortage?
- In the next 10 years, major airlines are expecting to retire over 40,000 pilots and close to 90,000 in the next 20 years. That’s over 4,000 pilots per year! For more detail on this data, click here for the Boeing Long-Term Forecast.
- These vacancies will need to be filled by current regional airline pilots.
- Regional airlines will then need to fill their vacancies with new pilots entering the industry.

Aviation industry suffers from not only shortage of pilots but qualification of young pilots. Since Pilots are responsible for lives of the passengers, they need to be qualified to pass aptitude test from the School as well as Civil Aviation Authority pilot licensing examinations and check-ride . That is why pilots are considered to have high social status and a proud profession, and the income of pilots is expected to be considerably high.
With the pilot shortage looming, now is the time to start your training. In 12-18 months, you can earn your Commercial Pilot’s License and Instrument Ratings at CONTINENTAL AERO FLYING SCHOOL and start building the hours needed to apply for a position with one of Dream Airline.

Boeing Urges International Action To Meet Pilot Shortage Challenge
| AWIN First
LOS ANGELES — Boeing says international collaboration between industry, government and academia is required to avoid future shortages of commercial pilot and maintenance staff which might otherwise hold back growth in developing markets.
The potential problems could be particularly acute in the Asia-Pacific region which Boeing projects will need 41% of the more than one million new pilots and maintenance technicians it forecasts will be needed by the world’s airlines over the next 20 years. The combined worldwide requirement is expected to include 533,000 pilots and 584,000 maintenance personnel.
