Boeing released its annual Current Market Outlook, indicating the need for the production of many aircraft, and hiring of many new pilots, technicians, and cabin crew.
According to the CMO, Boeing's forecast for the next 20 years is the addition of over 39,600 airplanes...a value of more than $5.9 trillion.
In line with the increased production is the projected boost in personnel. Of the projected 2,000,000 new aviation personnel, many are needed in North America.
104,000 New Pilots
118,000 New Technicians
169,000 New Cabin Crew
"Meeting this demand will require innovative solutions — focused on educational outreach and career pipeline programs — to inspire the next generation of pilots, technicians, and cabin crew. New technologies, devices, and training methods will be needed to meet a wide range of learning styles. The growing diversity of aviation personnel will also require instructors to have cross-cultural and cross-generational skills to engage tomorrow's workforce."
