    Boeing: Asia needs 500,000 aviation recruits:)

    Aviation giant Boeing has forecast the Asia Pacific region will require hundreds of thousands of new commercial airline pilots and technicians over the next 20 years to support airline fleet modernisation and the rapid growth of air travel.
    The 2011 Boeing Pilot & Technician Outlook calls for 182,300 new pilots and 247,400 new technicians in the Asia Pacific region through 2030.

    The greatest need is in China, which will require 72,700 pilots and 108,300 technicians over the next 20 years.
    “The demand for aviation personnel is evident today,” said Roei Ganzarski, chief customer officer, Boeing Flight Services.
    “In Asia we are already beginning to see some delays and operational disruptions due to a shortage of pilots.

    “To ensure the success of our industry as travel demands grows, it is critical that we continue to foster a talent pipeline of capable and well-trained aviation personnel.”

    Looks like we know where most of our pilots will be going to especially the ones that work for companies like Republic Airways with their horrendous salary. I feel better that they will be flying more which will equate to more money instead of sitting at the gate and hoping to fly to earn some money.
