Passenger travel in Africa is growing steadily, and that’s good news for perspective pilots from African countries. However, capacity needs to grow at the same pace. The market holds immense potential, according to the director-general of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, and European carriers have been actively working to add routes. US carrier, Delta Airines, is also adding US-Africa non-stop routes. Right now about 3,500 passengers fly daily each way between the US and Africa.
If you’re interested in becoming a pilot, and you are from an African country, consider coming to the US for your flight training. You can then become a highly skilled pilot and return to Africa to fly for one of the continent’s growing airlines. Talk to a Phoenix East admissions officer about how to accomplish your aviation goals.
