Boeing Sees Need for 1.2 Million Pilots and Technicians by 2036

Jul 27,2017

Boeing expects the world¡¯s commercial aviation industry will require more than 1.2 million pilots and mechanics over the next 20 years, placing an unprecedented strain on airline recruiters and training organizations to keep up with demand. According to Boeing, the airline industry will require 637,000 new pilots, 648,000 new mechanics and 839,000 cabin crew members during the period.

The eighth such annual forecast produced by Boeing, the 2017 edition shows a 3.2 percent increase in demand for pilots compared with the 2016 outlook, and a 4.6 percent decline from the previous year¡¯s forecast for mechanics. Boeing attributes the decrease to its projections of fewer maintenance hours needed on the 737 Max narrowbody compared with those needed for the airplane that now predominates among Boeing operators, the 737NG.

The Boeing forecast shows the most pronounced demand for pilots, technicians and flight attendants in the Asia-Pacific region, which, according to Boeing, stands soon to surpass North America as the world¡¯s biggest commercial aviation market. Specifically, Asia-Pacific will need 253,000 new pilots over the forecast period, as well as 256,000 mechanics and 308,000 cabin crew. While North America promises to command the second highest demand for pilots and mechanics, at 117,000 and 118,000, respectively, Europe will need more cabin crew, at 173,000, than will North America (154,000).

It¡¯s the same as 2016 outlook result that China aviation market will be the fasted-growing market in the world. Against this backdrop, ¡°China Aviation Training Forum 2017¡± which is hosted by Shanghai Society of Aeronautics will be held on September 6th - 8th, 2017 in Shanghai, China. CATF2017 will focus on the trend of aviation training market and flight safety through the session such as keynote speaking, panel discussion, exhibition, 1 to 1 meeting etc.
