A Great Career

Aircraft Pilot Shortage Looms in the U.S.

The United States has a shortage of pilots, particularly at the regional airline levels. According to the FAA, there were more than 800,000 pilots in the country thirty years ago, yet today that number has decreased by an estimated 30%. Yet, there has been a tremendous increase in the demand for air travel. Furthermore, the International Air Transport Association predicts that, over the next 20 years, air travel will double. This shrinking supply of pilots has created a perfect storm that could wreak havoc on the US airline industry over the next decade. Southern Sky Aviation can give you the skills and training to set you on the path to a career in aviation.
