In Boeing's newly released 2017 Pilot and Technician Outlook at Experimental Aircraft Assn. (EAA) AirVenture Oshkosh this week, there is an apparent need for more than 1 million pilots and technicians.
This is the eighth year Boeing has released this outlook. It forecasts the 20-year demand for crews to support the commercial airplane fleet. Boeing said that between 2017 and 2036, it forecasts that the world's commercial aviation industry will require 637,000 new commercial airline pilots, 648,000 new commercial airline maintenance technicians and 839,000 new cabin crew members.
