Boeing forecasts demand of 790,000 pilots in the next 20 years

Published on : Saturday, December 29, 2018

The recently released 2018 Pilot & Technician Outlook of Boeing predicts looming pilot shortage, demanding for 790,000 pilots over the next 20 years.



It shows double the existing work force and the most significant demand which is anticipated mostly due to the doubling of global commercial airplane  fleet, record-high air travel demand and strict labour supply.



There were data from business aviation and civil helicopters sectors for the first time.


Keith Cooper, vice president of training and professional services, Boeing Global Services said that despite strong global air traffic growth, the aviation industry continues to face a pilot labour supply challenge. There is a raising concern about the existence of a global pilot shortage in the near-term. Developing the next generation of pilot is the key to counter this.



Due to longer maintenance interval for new aircraft, the commercial pilot demand forecast remains steady but the maintenance demand got low.




An additional 155, 000 pilots and 132,000 technicians will be in demand in the business aviation and civil helicopter sectors.
