Salaries for India's Pilots Increasing
Wednesday, June 17, 2009
With the continued shortage of pilots in India, the country's airlines are increasingly relying on foreign pilots. For Indian pilots, slaries have been skyrocketing, as airlines compete for a limited pool of qualified pilots.
Last year the need for pilots reached such intensity that the government become involved and decreed that airlilne pilots much give six months notice before resigning. Increasing the retirement age (now at age 62) for airline pilots is also being considered to lessen the problem.
Commercial pilots in India can earn up to eight times more than what Indian Air Force pilots make.
So the future is indeed very bright for young people in India who are interested in flying.
