Boeing Forecasts Increased Global Demand for Airline Pilots

  • 0
Source: Boeing

Boeing (NYSE: BA) projects the commercial aviation industry will need more than one million new pilots and technicians to support the expanding demand for new airplane deliveries over the next two decades. Projected pilot demand is increasing worldwide, as is demand for technicians in some regions.

Today, at an event marking the launch of 787 flight training at the Boeing Flight Services campus in Miami, the company released the 2013 Pilot and Technician Outlook -- a respected industry forecast of aviation personnel.

The Boeing outlook indicates that by 2032 the world will require:

498,000 new commercial airline pilots
556,000 new commercial airline maintenance technicians

"The urgent demand for competent aviation personnel is a global issue that is here now and is very real," said Sherry Carbary, vice president of Boeing Flight Services. "The key to closing the pilot and technician gap in our industry is enhancing our training with the latest, cutting-edge technologies to attract and retain young people interested in careers in aviation."

The 2013 outlook projects significant increases in pilot demand -- compared to previous forecasts -- in all regions except Europe, which declined slightly over last year's outlook. Overall, the demand is driven by steadily increasing airplane deliveries, particularly single-aisle airplanes, and represents a global requirement for about 25,000 new pilots annually

Global demand for technicians remains significant, at approximately 28,000 new technicians required annually. However, the introduction of more efficient and smarter airplanes will require fewer mechanics over time, as aging aircraft—which typically require more maintenance—are retired from service. New airplane technologies featuring more advanced components are likely to lead in some areas to lower maintenance requirements and corresponding lower technician demand.

Projected demand for new pilots and technicians by global region:

Asia Pacific – 192,300 pilots and 215,300 technicians
Europe – 99,700 pilots and 108,200 technicians
North America – 85,700 pilots and 97,900 technicians
Latin America – 48,600 pilots and 47,600 technicians
Middle East – 40,000 pilots and 53,100 technicians
Africa – 16,500 pilots and 15,900 technicians
Russia and CIS – 15,200 pilots and 18,000 technicians

"This is a global issue that can only be addressed by industry-wide innovation and solutions," said Carbary. "We need to attract more young people to careers in aviation by continually looking at innovative ways to train pilots and technicians, moving away from paper and chalkboard-based learning to incorporate tablets, eBooks, gaming technology and three-dimensional models. Aviation is a great field to be in—we have a responsibility to make sure it's a viable career option for the world's youth."

JETSTREAM Aviation Academy ready for first new airline pilot intake in UAE

  • 0

Greek-headquartered training organisation, JETSTREAM Aviation Academy, is now accepting enrollment for first officer training at its new Silicon Oasis training center in the UAE.

JETSTREAM approved ATO under both the EASA and the UAE - GCAA regulations, has launched its Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) and A320 or B737 type rating course which includes the new requirement of Aircraft Base Training.
Enrollment applications are being accepted for the newly introduced 16-month Airline First Officer course which takes place in Dubai and combines the ATPL, the type rating on Airbus A320 or Boeing B737, and the actual aircraft Base Training.
Successful students will be licensed by two globally leading authorities and will have obtained all these skills and attributes, in all aspects of flying and personal aptitude, required to face and meet the expectations of the demanding aviation industry that will make them attractive for prospect employment by any world-class airline.
Capt. John Diskos the CEO and head of training said: ‘JETSTREAM is the first ATO approved under the new GCAA regulations. The cost effective Airline First Officer course, has been designed for individuals who aim directly to the airline’s pilot seat. The program emphasizes superior aeronautical decision making utilizing advanced aircraft and flight simulation, in a proficiency-based training environment. It is conducted in a controlled environment ideal for the development of critical thinking, and excellence is achieved through the integrated nature of the course for the next generation commercial pilots.
JETSTREAM’s fleet of aircraft and simulators provide the opportunity for students to apply the skills and concepts learned in the ground. ‘We believe that only the most advanced aircraft should be used to ensure the success of students. All training activities are designed using the most advanced concepts in modern-day instruction. New pilots are trained to work together as a crew from the outset using standardized airline call-outs and checklist philosophy. Emphasis is placed on airman-ship and the human factors behind decision-making and conflict resolution.’ said the chief flight instructor (CFI) Capt. E. Andreadis.
Classes begin in September and November 2013.
