Boeing Sees Need for 1.2 Million Pilots and Technicians by 2036

26 Juillet 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. Airlines in the Asia-Pacific region will require the greatest number of new personnel in all categories (817,000 total, including 308,000 cabin crew; 256,000 technicians; and 253,000 pilots).

As detailed in its 2017 Pilot and Technician Outlook released July 25, Boeing estimates the global airline industry by 2036 will need 637,000 new commercial airline pilots, 648,000 new commercial airline maintenance technicians and 839,000 new cabin crew members.

Overall, Boeing's total 20-year personnel forecast differs marginally (up 0.7%) from its forecast last year.

According to South Africa's Independent Online , on Monday afternoon (24th July), PRHSA announced plans to withdraw the book. Mandela's widow, Graça Machel, had expressed her displeasure with it.

The demand for new technicians and new cabin crew in the region will reach 66,000 and 96,000 respectively, said the report titled "2017 Pilot and Technician Outlook".

Boeing said the outlook also shows an increase of 3.2% of pilots over its 2016 outlook, as well as a decrease of 4.6% in the need for airline maintenance technicians. It attributes this to the reduction in maintenance hours required on the 737 Max.
