Today the aviation industry is facing a huge challenge – a shortage of new pilots from across the globe. And each year the active number of pilots is declining substantially. Analysis shows that the civil aviation industry will require more than 260, 000 new pilots over the next decade. These combined challenges will drive the demand for about 27, 000 new pilots as of the end of 2021.
