What Pilot Shortage? There's No Pilot Shortage!

Postby jarheadpilot82 » Wed Jun 14, 2017 11:35 am

I have believed for several years that this would be the airline industry's long-term answer to a pilot shortage. People thought that I was nuts for saying so. Apparently Boeing agrees with me -

Jeff,

Certainly not next year, or even next decade, but I do think it is coming. At what point reality and technology intersect is unknown, but I do think it is inevitable.

The air lines are already worrying about pilot availability keeping pace with growth as well as retirements. I just brought it up to point out that Boeing sees a future need and is trying to figure out how to meet it.

I hate to see it as well, but I think that it is coming.
