Several of the world’s leading airlines have announced that they need Pilots and this has a direct consequence that affects the air routes of Europe, Asia and the United States Lines.
Boeing estimated that more than 600,000 new pilots will be needed in the next 20 years. European airlines also report a great need for unprecedented pilots.
AIRLINE PILOT STUDENTS GET QUICK WORK
At AFN, Pilot students receive intensive training over 2 and a half years. Once the flight training and the theoretical subjects have been completed, the students are ready to apply for a job as an Airline Pilot and 90% of the students get work as pilots within a year after receiving the flight license
AFN Airline Pilot students feel fortunate in the face of the shortage of Pilots, and are very optimistic about how they see their future work once they finish their training.
“It’s a good time in years” says Luis, “I think there are good opportunities to get a job when it ends in a month and a half”
“Employment opportunities today are much better than they were years ago” says Lucas
Many airlines are rushing to get enough pilots, because before the foreseeable shortage of pilots the vacancies left by pilots who retire are added. This reinforces Boeing’s forecast of the future need for new Pilots for the next 20 years.
