Worldwide Pilot Shortage
Did you know that the world has a pilot crisis? There are not enough pilots to fill all the needs worldwide. One reason the world has a serious pilot shortage is that many of the airlines around the world have been increasing the number of planes in their fleets.
In Asia alone, Airbus has tripled the size of its shipments to meet the expected growth. Many of these airlines now face the hurdle of where to attain the funding to train pilots to keeps these planes safe and in the air.
Commercial pilots are starting year average salary range from $65,000 to $120,000 with the potential to $200,000 for those pilots who have accumulated over 1000 flight hours. It is rare for a five-year experienced pilot to expect less than $100,000 per year.
Funding For Flight Your Training
Where will the new pilots come from and how will they get the financial support for schooling? Historically, funding for fixed-wing, private, and airline pilot training has been financially prohibitive for many men and women due to limited monies available or being required to take huge personal loans to cover the cost of training. But subsequently, the aviation industry and private lenders have made funds more available to those pursuing a career in the aviation or air travel industry, which may lead to more pilots and help solve the issue of the pilot shortage.
