High Demand For Pilots

With the ever-continuing long-term growth trend of airline travel, demand for pilots from airlines is outpacing supply, causing a forecasted pilot shortages in the years to come. With over 750,000 pilots needed globally by 2039, according to Boeing, and over 200,000 of those in the U.S. alone, high demand could lead to high salaries and benefits as supply is incentivized to meet this demand.

Short term solutions during the COVID pandemic only increased this issue for airlines, with incentivized early retirements the need to backfill these roles with young pilots is even greater, making now a great time for student pilots entering the workforce.
