A message to enterprising Student Pilots in the Atlanta, GA region:As 2020 comes to a close, our Atlanta pilot training location has become a shining symbol of Academy of Aviation's growth and dedication to new and aspiring flight training students. Choosing to open a flight school in the Atlanta region is an easy decision; the proximity to the major Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and the charm of remote forests and the monadnock mountains of Arabia, Panola, and Stone Mountain make learning to fly in the Atlanta area one of the most thrilling places to explore the next chapter of your life.
The latest Boeing Pilot & Technician Outlook 2020–2039 projects that 763,000 new civil aviation pilots will be needed to fly and maintain the global fleet over the next 20 years. The forecast suggests that air traffic recovers to 2019 levels within the next few years.
Boeing predicts “the long-term need (for pilots) remains robust.” Boeing’s report says it will “take around three years for commercial air travel to return to 2019 levels” but notes that “business aviation is currently in the midst of a robust recovery.” Retirements and other vacancies should leave “openings that will need to be filled by furloughed and new aviators.”
Boeing also states, “as the industry positions itself for recovery, adequate qualified pilot supply remains an important consideration as a large contingent of the workforce approaches mandatory retirement age. Positions left vacant because of retirements will need to be filled, which is likely to coincide with industry recovery, fleet growth and efforts by other operators to recruit new pilots for similar purposes.”
In the time it takes to complete your flight training and earn your ATP, Boeing predicts that the job market will recover and flourish as it traditionally has done in the past:
“While the current industry downturn, driven by COVID-19, has resulted in a temporary oversupply of qualified personnel, the long-term need remains robust. In recent decades, aviation has experienced external forces that have affected demand, such as 9/11, SARS and the Great Financial Crisis. Recovery has generally followed several years later, as the fundamentals driving passenger and air traffic demand remain strong.”
