Pilot Shortage timeline

About how long do y’all think the pilot shortage will last?


All indications are it should be a while, 10 yrs or more? That said no one has a crystal ball so you never know? Things were really good in the late 90’s early 00’s, 9/11 happened it went downhill VERY quickly.



That is a very difficult question to answer as it is dependent on so many different variables at play. Right now every indication is that the shortage is going to last for several years, but like all things it can be cyclical.


Thank you for the response. It is appreciated :slight_smile:

That make sense. Thank you.
