Opportunities for Pilots
Tuesday, April 20, 2010
If you're wondering what opportunites might be out there for you as an airline pilot, here's an excellent example. American Airlines pilot union (Allied Pilots Association) actually summarized the current situation by saying that today there are nearly twice as many active pilots over age 60 as there are below age 40. The average AA pilot age is nearly 51 years old, with the average captain being 53 years of age. The average first officer is 48 years of age.
What does this mean to you? Simple math will tell you that there are going to be a lot of retirements soon -- all those older pilots, which also means the necessity to do a significant amount of hiring. Remember, U.S. pilots are required by federal regulation (assuming they can continue to pass their FAA medical exams), must retire no later than 65.
