Recent Boeing projections show that the world will need to produce twice as many commercial pilots over the next 20 years. Concerns are mounting in the wake of a recent announcement revealing an unprecedented pilot shortage. According to yearly projections from Boeing (NYSE: BA) for pilots and technicians, the world’s commercial aviation fleet is expected to double over the next 20 years. This will drive a demand for 790,000 pilots, a staggering number who need to be trained and ready to fly a commercial airliner to keep up with the growth.
I am proud to announce that Coast Flight Training has added two new partner airlines to their Rotor Transition Program: Mesa Airlines and SkyWest Airlines. Adding these two, along with our current partner, Envoy Air, brings us to three regional carriers that we service with our world-class training program!
In my experience, the transition happened over the course of about 8 months. From the time I had my instrument rating and I started getting halfway decent at flying, I spent a lot of time teaching people what I had learned. I led study groups and even flew with other students well before I become an instructor. I eventually got my Ground Instrutor Certificate and was actually hired as a ground instructor teaching 3 hour or more classroom lectures in addition to one on one sessions. When it was time to take my CFI checkride, I was already an instructor. I believed in myself, I just had to make the examiner believe.
