Report forecasts 20-year demand for personnel worldwide
Boeing projects global demand for more than 1.2 million pilots and technicians over the next 20 years as well as almost 840,000 cabin crew.
In its latest annual Pilot and Technician Outlook, the Dallas-based aircraft manufacturer forecasts intense demand for crews to support the world’s growing commercial fleet.
Between 2017 and 2036, aviation will need around 637,000 new commercial airline pilots, 648,000 new commercial airline maintenance technicians and 839,000 new cabin crew members.
That’s a slight increase of 3.2% for pilots over the previous outlook last year and a 4.6% decrease in the need for technicians – “primarily driven by the reduction in maintenance hours required on the 737 MAX”, the outlook alleges.
Much of the demand will be in Asia-Pacific (253,000 new pilots, 256,000 technicians, 308,000 cabin crew), with Europe needing 106,000 pilots, 111,000 technicians and 173,000 attendants. North America will need 117,000 new pilots by 2036, 118,000 technicians and 154,000 cabin crew.
