Become a Pilot
Professional Pilots are in Demand
Getting paid to fly is a dream come true for many pilots, and becoming one is not as difficult as you might think. Given the current demand, there is no better time to get started on your career as a pilot.
The FAA cites in its 2020 Aerospace Forecast an airline pilot shortage as an ongoing issue for regional airlines. Leading aircraft manufacturers such as Boeing, Airbus, and Embraer project increasing (even doubling) their commercial jet fleets to account for an increase in consumer demand for air travel. Even other sectors such as cargo, charter, and corporate pilots are experiencing an increased demand for pilots and often require less flight hours to begin.
New pilots needed worldwide per the next 20 years.

With more pilots retiring than graduating from flight school and leading aircraft manufacturers increasing their fleets due to consumer demand, becoming a pilot can provide you with an endless set of opportunities.
Airline Pilot Pay
Flying is a satisfying and rewarding career, and pilots of every sector are paid very well. The median wage for airline pilots, copilots, and flight engineers was $147,220 in May 2019, according to The Occupational Outlook Handbook, from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Although, pay for airline pilots depends on the airline, the airline type (regional or major), the pilot’s experience level (pilot seniority), and the aircraft being flown. However, all pilots do receive company health, life, and disability insurance and retirement plans.
