ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - While the pilot shortage is likely to be the new normal, there’s
no shortage of interest in pilot training, says a local aviation school.
“We have people just flooding to the school wanting the opportunity to learn how to
fly,” explained Aaron Hollewell, director of the Peachtree City campus of the Academy of
Aviation. The company owns several locations across the southeast and trains students
from 36 countries.
It’s a tale of two stories right now. Thursday, Delta pilots in Atlanta and around the nation, protested their workloads, claiming to be underpaid and overworked. They say their current conditions just won’t fly. However, local pilot training schools are all but cutting back flights. The Academy of Aviation confirmed to CBS46 that it’s had a 350% jump in enrollment this summer. “It’s [people of] all walks of life. It’s varied from one end to the other.” Hollewell continued, “We have a lot of people who are career-changing - people who have done the grind of life and are looking for fun.” The director says each trainer can oversee about 15 to 20 students in a session.
After airlines cut back on contracts and offered pilots early retirement to stay afloat during the pandemic, it’s now a game of catch-up as travel takes off. Hollewell hopes his school is one of the solutions. “There’s no better time to be in aviation than right now.” Some experts warned this spring that the pilot shortage may not peak until 2023.
