Why Pilots Are Needed More Than Ever

Many of us have dreamed of becoming airline pilots. And why not?  Itโ€™s a privilege to travel the world, experience different cultures, and just to be in that aircraft, flying through the skies.

Besides these perks, being a pilot is also a high-paying job.


Of course, more than just benefits to the pilot, itโ€™s also a big responsibility and an honor to transport people safely thousands of feet in the air, through great distances. This is why pilots must undergo rigorous training to be qualified.


If thatโ€™s not enough reason for you to enter an aviation school, here are serious reasons why you should consider being a pilot:


Pilot shortages

Due to the rapidly growing economy in the Asia-Pacific region, 255,000 pilots are needed in the aviation industry in the next 10 years.


Sudden growth at international carriers

Well-qualified pilots can earn a lot if they fly for international carriers, especially in countries in Asia. A whopping $200,000- $300,000 can be earned yearly if you decided to fly a plane in countries like China or India.


Retiring pilots

The mandatory retirement age has been moved from 60 years old to 65 years old last 2007. With this fact, younger pilots are scrambling to fill the positions of the older pilots ready to retire.
