The Surprising Need for Pilots
Recently, airlines are experiencing a huge problem in finding enough number of pilots. One of the contributing factors of this problem is that the instructors in various aviation schools worldwide end up discouraging their students on how they will not secure jobs after school.
Pilots usually do a very hectic task but their pay does not conform to what they do and therefore end up getting discouraged as no one can stand doing lots of work while getting nothing out of it. 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. Nowadays, many people prefer other professions to pilot due to the reasons they have each as an individual.
The schedule of traveling regionally has been reduced and due to this people cannot dare being pilots due to the fear of becoming jobless in future.
The fees to be paid in aviation colleges is usually very high that many individuals are unable to pay despite the fact that they had an interest in being pilots and therefore as a result shortage arises. 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 imbalance between the demand and the supply for pilots need to be addressed.
Initial problems should be solved to ensure that does not become a concern in future. 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.
