In case you wonder if the pilot shortage is like global warming – something to debate. The answer is no and getting clearer by the day.
Horizon Airlines needs pilots. Ryanair needs pilots. Norwegian is poaching pilots from Ryanair. Indigo needs pilots. Over 100 Air India pilots are not behaving well. In India, a pilot needs to provide ONE YEAR notice to resign.
So yes there is a shortage and it is growing and going global. If you’re young and want a career with some promise, this might be good news. Demand exceeds supply and its getting worse.
