The Surprising Need for Pilots
Recently, airlines are experiencing a huge problem in finding enough number of pilots. Many students drop out of aviation schools due to reasons such as having the fear that they will stay jobless after all the years of training and this fear is mainly generated by those who teach them.
Also, the amount of money that the recent pilots are paid is too low according to statistics and this causes them to give up with their jobs. Usually, many people expect growth in whatever thing they are associated with and they, therefore, find it boring staying in an environment where everything remains the same way as the found it and therefore leave to find a better place where they can experience growth.
Since when some companies introduced a retiring age, a shortage of pilots available in looking for jobs arose and also those enrolling in airline schools. It has been recently found out that that very few individuals are enrolling in aviation schools and this contributes to the shortage that is being experienced worldwide.
Companies made a great mistake by reducing the number of schedules available for traveling regionally as they greatly contributed to shortage.
The costs associated with pilot training are so huge and they end up driving many people away from that sector especially those who are unable to pay the money. And due to this, pilot short has a number of impacts on people’s lives.
First, they are being highly charged even when travel just over a short distance. Departure times of users are greatly affected as many delays are experienced since the number of pilots available to drive them is very low. Before one becomes a pilot, he/she must first become an instructor and therefore pilot shortage means instructors shortage.
Those students pursuing a course in pilots are proud about the condition right now as they are sure that they will easily secure jobs once they are done with school. Solutions concerning pilot shortage need to be figured out. The disparity between the pilots demanded and those to be supplied need to be solved.
The problems that pilots experience at the workplace need not be the same. Pilot students need to be offered some sponsorship since some are them are unable to cater for their education needs. Since many students are unable to raise huge sums of money, reduction in tuition fees means many of them will enroll and thus the shortage is resolved.
