The Surprising Need for Pilots
It has been reported lately that there is a drastic shortage of pilots worldwide. One of the reasons of this pilot shortage is that the instructors tell students of how there’s no job after school.
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.
There has been a recent case of forcing pilots to retire at a certain age which was not the case during early times and this makes many people lose interest in being pilots. The number of students in schools pursuing a course concerning piloting is very minimal according to statistics and this becomes a threat to the availability of pilots.
Companies made a great mistake by reducing the number of schedules available for traveling regionally as they greatly contributed to shortage.
Also, training schools are overcharging their students while they undertake the course and those who do not afford to opt to find other courses as piloting is not the only course available. Travelers have been greatly affected by this shortage being experienced across the world
First, they are being highly charged even when travel just over a short distance. Pilot shortage has become a barrier to many people’s travel schedules as some are delayed at the stage and others are even hurt enough by their travels are canceled due to non-availability of pilots. Before one becomes a pilot, he/she must first become an instructor and therefore pilot shortage means instructors shortage.
On the other hand, as pilot shortage has other impacts, it is actually good news to some individuals across the globe. There are a number of things that need to be done for this problem to be resolved. The disparity between the pilots demanded and those to be supplied need to be solved.
The management should ensure that previous challenges experienced by pilots are not the same ones experienced. Sponsorship programs need to be implemented to ensure those enrolled complete their education and this solves the shortage. Training schools should also introduce an initiative on finding out how to reduce their tuition fees to make it at least favorable for their students and even encourage many more to join.
