1. Why become an airline pilot?
Boeing predicts that the commercial aviation industry will need 498,000 pilots and 556,000 technicians worldwide over the next 20 years to meet demand.
“In many regions of the world, our customers are facing challenges in recruiting personnel due to pilot and technician shortages,” said Sherry Carbary, vice president, Boeing Flight Services.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) forecasts global industry net profit to rise to $38.4 billion in 2018, an improvement from the $34.5 billion expected net profit in 2017 (revised from a $31.4 billion forecast in June).
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) expects 7.2 billion passengers to travel in 2035, a near doubling of the 3.8 billion air travelers in 2016. The prediction is based on a 3.7% annual Compound Average Growth Rate (CAGR) noted in the release of the latest update to the association’s 20-Year Air Passenger Forecast.
“People want to fly. Demand for air travel over the next two decades is set to double. Enabling people and nations to trade, explore, and share the benefits of innovation and economic prosperity makes our world a better place.”
“These are good times for the global air transport industry. Safety performance is solid. We have a clear strategy that is delivering results on environmental performance. More people than ever are traveling. The demand for air cargo is at its strongest level in over a decade. Employment is growing. More routes are being opened. Airlines are achieving sustainable levels of profitability.”
Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO.
FAA Aerospace Forecasts
2017 marks the eighth consecutive year of profitability for the U.S. airline industry. Looking forward, there is confidence that U.S. airlines have finally transformed from a capital-intensive, highly cyclical industry to an industry that generates solid returns on capital and sustained profits. Fundamentally, over the medium and long-term, aviation demand is driven by economic activity, and a growing U.S. and world economy provide the basis for aviation to grow over the long run. The 2018 FAA forecast calls for U.S. carrier passenger growth over the next 20 years to average 1.9 percent per year. The uptick in passenger growth in 2016-17 will continue into 2018 spurred on by favorable economic conditions in the U.S. and the world.
