1.5 million pilots, technicians needed by 2035

Demand for 617,000 new commercial airline pilots
Demand for nearly 1.5 million pilots and technicians over the next 20 years is forecast in Boeing’s 2016 Pilot and Technician Outlook, released this week.
Now in its seventh year, the outlook is an industry study that predicts the 20-year demand for crews to support the world’s growing commercial fleets. New this year is a look at cabin crew demand.
Boeing forecasts that between 2016 and 2035, the world’s commercial aviation industry will require approximately 617,000 new commercial airline pilots, 679,000 new commercial airline maintenance technicians and 814,000 new cabin crew.
That’s a growth of 10.5% for pilots over the 2015 outlook and 11.3% for maintenance technicians. New pilot demand is primarily driven by aircraft deliveries and fleet mix, while new technician demand is driven by fleet growth.
The outlook represents a global requirement for about 31,000 new pilots, 35,000 new technicians and 40,000 cabin crew annually.
The Asia-Pacific region comprises 40% of the global need due to the growth in the single-aisle market driven by low-cost carriers, while North America is the result of new markets opening in Cuba and Mexico. Demand in Europe has also increased, as a response to a strong intra-European Union market.
