The aviation industry is expanding like never before. A record number of aircraft are on order, which will result in a record number of pilot and ground position opportunities. It is estimated over the next 20 years 533,000 pilots will be required to meet the demand; 216,000 being in the Asia-Pacific region. India is expected to lead the growth in Asia’s aviation industry.
Previously, aviation was strictly a luxury industry. Before World War 2, aviation was strictly for the very wealthy. Very few people flew; very few career opportunities existed in aviation. Many people look fat aircraft in wonder, but for most people it remained a dream. After World War 2 ended, the airline industry developed. More people flew, but it was still luxury. The aviation industry was at the mercy of the economy. Well into the 1990s, anytime there was an economic downturn, there were massive layoffs and losses in the industry. This made flying potentially a very unstable careeer.
The 21st century has seen a massive change in the industry. The fastest way to transport passengers or goods is by air.Poeople can no longer take weeks to get to their destination. Everything moves fast in the 21st century. This has made aviation indispensable. Aviation has never been so important to the world! Recent economic downturns have not effected the industry as in the past. Flights anywhere in the world are almost always full.This had changed aviation into a career which offers both adventure and stability. A great combination in any career!
There has never been hiring or career opportunities for pilots like the present. More hiring is happening than ever before, and the airlines are offering stable careers with a limitless future.
