The jobs are in demand. The salary potential is big.


Seriously. What other career has an office view of 30,000 feet? What’s more, the aviation industry includes a number of unique career paths—flight instructor, aircraft salesperson, even astronaut!

In fact, according to Aviation Week, more than 20,000 pilot jobs are expected to open within the next seven years, with many pilots nearing retirement.

But there’s more. With global growth in the aviation industry, there’s a shortage of qualified pilots in the US and internationally. And these jobs need to be filled to ensure that smaller regional airlines can continue to offer service that so many people rely on.

See what we’re getting at?

The industry needs world-class pilots. And that could be you.
