The regional shortage could start as early as the end of this year, reaching an estimated 3,000 pilots by 2023 and 18,000 by 2032 if no accelerated mitigation actions are taken.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p style="text-align:start; margin-top:16px"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri, sans-serif"><span style="color:#000000"><span style="font-style:normal"><span style="font-weight:400"><span style="white-space:normal"><span style="text-decoration:none">“If demand for air travel continues to grow, airlines need to accelerated recruiting efforts from other regions where we anticipate less acute shortages, particularly Latin America and Asia Pacific, to fill gaps. Failing that, we may see adjustment of schedules into and out of the region, impacting the Middle East’s carriers and airport operators” added Martins.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p style="text-align:start; margin-top:16px"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri, sans-serif"><span style="color:#000000"><span style="font-style:normal"><span style="font-weight:400"><span style="white-space:normal"><span style="text-decoration:none">Oliver Wyman forecasted in early 2021 that an impending pilot shortage was on the horizon, contrary to reality at the time, as COVID-19 was decimating the airline industry and any recovery appeared years away. We are now predicting <span style="color:black"><span style="letter-spacing:-0.15pt">global aviation to be short nearly 80,000 pilots by 2032, absent a downturn in future demand or air travel and/or strenuous efforts by the industry to bolster the supply of pilots.&nbsp;</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p style="text-align:start"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri, sans-serif"><span style="color:#000000"><span style="font-style:normal"><span style="font-weight:400"><span style="white-space:normal"><span style="text-decoration:none">&nbsp;</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> </div> <div> <div>Posted date</div> <div><time datetime="2022-08-22T12:00:00Z">Mon, 22/08/2022 - 12:00</time> </div> </div> <div> <div>First paragraph</div> <div><p><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri, sans-serif"><span style="color:#000000"><span style="font-style:normal"><span style="font-weight:400"><span style="white-space:normal"><span style="text-decoration:none">The Middle East is expected to be the first to be hit by the global pilot shortage according to a leading management consultancy.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Regions</div> <div> <div><a href="/middle-east-and-north-africa" hreflang="en">Middle East and North Africa</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Other topics</div> <div> <div><a href="/people" hreflang="en">People</a></div> <div><a href="/training" hreflang="en">Training</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Rate</div> <div><form class="fivestar-form-7" id="vote--7" data-drupal-selector="fivestar-form-7" action="/taxonomy/term/9/feed" method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8"> <div class="clearfix fivestar-average-text fivestar-average-stars fivestar-form-item fivestar-basic"><div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-fivestar form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-select form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <select class="vote form-select" data-drupal-selector="edit-vote" aria-describedby="edit-vote--14--description" id="edit-vote--14" name="vote"><option value="-">Select rating</option><option value="20">Give it 1/5</option><option value="40">Give it 2/5</option><option value="60">Give it 3/5</option><option value="80">Give it 4/5</option><option value="100">Give it 5/5</option><option value="0">Cancel rating</option></select> <div id="edit-vote--14--description" class="description"> <div class="fivestar-summary fivestar-summary-average-count"><span class="empty">No votes yet</span></div> </div> </div> </div> </div><input style="display:none" data-drupal-selector="edit-submit" type="submit" id="edit-submit--7" name="op" value="Rate" class="button js-form-submit form-submit" /> <input autocomplete="off" data-drupal-selector="form-q6uuvkfp3murv6k2wm6vgefhztdhpbnan0umio-7hic" type="hidden" name="form_build_id" value="form-Q6UUVKfp3MUrV6K2wM6VgefHZTDhPbnAN0uMio_7Hic" /> <input data-drupal-selector="edit-fivestar-form-7" type="hidden" name="form_id" value="fivestar_form_7" /> </form> </div> </div> <div> <div>Top story</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Article main topic</div> <div><a href="/air-transport" hreflang="en">Air transport</a></div> </div> <div> <div>Redirected</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Moved to features</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Lead image:</div> <div> <img property="schema:image" src="/sites/aerospace/times/files/2022-08/Screenshot%202022-08-22%20at%2012.58.29.png" width="1560" height="826" alt="" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> <div> <div>New batch</div> <div>Off</div> </div> Mon, 22 Aug 2022 11:00:57 +0000 aPeaford 65452 at http://www.timesaerospace.aero Former President of Boeing Middle East joins BAA’s Advisory Board http://www.timesaerospace.aero/news/people/former-president-of-boeing-middle-east-joins-baas-advisory-board <div property="schema:text"><p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">The former President of Boeing Middle East, Turkey and Africa becomes the first American on the advisory board, following the earlier appointments of Laila Hareb Almheiri, Stefan Pichler, Dr. Michael Kerkloh, Tilmann Gabriel and Aya Sadder.
