Graph showing the expansion of aviation by country on the world map
We are going to review a detailed study produced by Boeing and Airbus on commercial aviation.
We will begin with some of the reasons that explain the increase in commercial flights. The study of Asia is considered vital in the coming decades as it is one of the fastest growing continents in this regard. One of the main reasons for this is the growth of the middle class with enough purchasing power to fly – this middle class is leaving rural areas to go to cities, entailing the growth of a population with greater purchasing power and opportunities. In fact, it is expected that two thirds of the world’s middle class will be located in the Asia-Pacific region by 2030. We must keep the Asian market in mind when it comes to finding employment as an airline pilot, given the need for new professionals in this region.
In fact, according to Boeing, over the following two decades the global demand for aviation professionals will be as follows: Asia-Pacific with 226,000 pilots and 238,000 technicians. Europe with 95,000 pilots and 101,000 technicians. North America with 95,000 pilots and 113,000 technicians. Latin America with 47,000 pilots and 47,000 technicians. The Middle East with 60,000 pilots and 66,000 technicians. Africa with 18,000 pilots and 22,000 technicians. And Russia and the CIS with 17,000 pilots and 22,000 technicians. Careers in aviation are expected to be one of the most in-demand over the coming years.
