Pilot shortage. What are the job prospects for airline and commercial pilots?
Employment of commercial and airline pilots is projected to grow 13% between 2020 and 2030, faster than the average for all occupations. Approximately 14,700 openings are expected for airline and commercial pilots each year over the decade. (US Bureau of Labor Statistics)
With the staggering pilot shortage taking North America, Europe and parts of the rest of the world by storm, now is a fantastic time to start learning how to be a pilot.
With more airlines starting to open fully-type rating programs, huge pay hikes, and airlines competing for pilots, the next few years are going to be amazing for airline pilots.
