Pilot Shortage Is Your Opportunity, Start Your Flight Training Today

Pilot Shortage Is Your Opportunity, Start Your Flight Training TodayThe bigger threat is an approaching worldwide shortage of future pilots to fly these machines – emphasis on a “worldwide” issue vs. a U.S. issue, because much of the growth in aviation is occurring outside the United States. Boeing and Airbus both have seen it coming for years and predicted that there will be a need for as many as a half million (yes, that many) new airline pilots over the next two decades – around the world, especially in the Asia Pacific region and India.

Piper Training Fleets to the Rescue

Coupled with an aging fleet of training aircraft and even older shrinking corps of pilot baby boomers, the potential threat to aviation of all types becomes alarming. Fortunately, one of the manufacturers of training aircraft saw this coming about 18 months ago and re-calibrated the company to meet an anticipated increased demand for pilot trainers.

In my consulting work for Piper Aircraft, headquartered in Vero Beach, Fla., I am pleased to say that the company’s foresight is paying off. The company’s airplanes are destined to train pilots around the world in response to the intense need for future aviators.

Earlier this month, Piper announced two major fleet deals destined to train pilots in the United States and abroad for future jobs around the world.

CAE Oxford Training Academy, one of the world’s leading pilot educators, trains pilots globally and is active in the Asia Pacific region, including China. It placed an initial order for 35 aircraft, part of a five-year fleet replenishment initiative agreement with Piper. Under the agreement, CAE, based in Canada, has designated Piper as its Preferred Aircraft Provider. CAE’s long-term needs include modernizing its large fleet. Piper expects these future pilot training airplanes to go to CAE training academies around the world. CAE already trains pilots in Europe, Africa, India, Hong Kong, Australia and the U.S.

Piper offers both single-engine and twin-engine training airplanes, which is important to the learning process for new pilots as they progress to more sophisticated flying tasks. And, of course, these training airplanes can have the very latest in cockpit avionics and navigation equipment so the new pilots and their future passengers have the benefit of state-of-the-art safety technology.

For each one of us who uses business aviation, or the scheduled airlines, on a regular basis, having a well-trained cadre in the cockpit is a prerequisite for getting on the plane in the first place. These training airplanes will train airline pilots and other aviators that will find their way to the cockpits of business aircraft around the globe.
