Shortage of Pilots in the US

- Oct/2018

It is estimated that there are currently about 130,000 commercial pilots in the world. This is a low number compared to aviation trends in the last 30 years, especially in the Asian market. According to recent data released by Boeing, 253,000 new pilots will be required to maintain pace with this growth.

In the United States, while offering high salaries (around $314,000.00 per year, tax-free) and excellent benefits, airlines simply cannot hire enough pilots to meet the demand. It is estimated that in the USA there is now a shortage of 15,000 pilots.

The problem is set to worsen, considering that 42% of pilots serving large US companies will retire within the next 10 years; in fact; few young people are currently pursuing careers in aviation.

One of the alternatives to circumvent the lack of pilots in the United States is to attract foreign talent to work for American airline companies. Pilots from other countries who possess the requisite professional skills, academic qualifications, and who qualify for immigrant visas, will find an extremely attractive job market that is facing substantial growth in the coming years.
