IMPORTANT: PILOT SHORTAGE IS A REAL PROBLEM!!!
A blue-chip organization of industry groups and businesses has collectively asked that the Government Accountability Office be directed to study what many regard as a serious looming pilot shortage. The group says a confluence of factors appears to be lining up that will make pilots in short supply.
A retirement bubble, which encompasses those who extended their careers thanks to a 2007 law that pushed the airline pilot retirement age to 65, has now run its course and retirement rates are expected to accelerate. At the same time, student pilot starts are dropping, the military is cutting back on the number of pilots it trains and a new law has mandated that the FAA require all Part 121 pilots to have an air transport pilot (ATP) certificate.
Now is the time to learn to fly. If we don’t encourage new student starts NOW, we are going to have serious shortages in the years to come..
