Why the World is Running Out of Pilots

Hey all, a few people have had some questions about the break-down of costs for a ATP License at the beginning of this video so I thought I’d try to clear things up and show a few sources for the different components. College Cost: I misplaced the original source that lines up exactly with $133k but this statistic is about the same accounting for yearly growth. https://www.statista.com/statistics/238112/university-attendance-costs-in-the-united-states/ Private Pilots License: I said $8,000 in the video based off a source’s estimate. Looking at a random selection of flight schools’ estimates it could be even a little higher. Many have also pointed out that the vast majority of individuals can only apply with 40 hours flight time (a small minority of US pilots are trained under Title 14 of federal code part 141 which allow them to apply with 35 hours.) While I was choosing to use the lowest numbers for training as to not sensationalize the cost numbers (it’s sensational enough as it is) I probably should have done the math for 40 hours (maybe even more as many need more hours to gain the skills needed) to get a more average estimate. $9,950: https://www.illinoisaviation.com/flight-training/private-pilot-141/ $8,123: http://www.stcharlesflyingservice.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/CostEstimateToAdvance.pdf $7944: http://www.flyhafc.com $9500: https://www.executiveflighttraining.com/Private_Pilot_License.html Instrument Rating: The way I presented this bit was definitely confusing. The $900 I mentioned was accounting for the ground training and then I wrapped the hours needed for an instrument rating into the additional hours needed for a commercial pilots license (215/210.) Commercial Pilots License: From the comments I’ve read nobody really disagrees with the estimate I put for the overall CPL cost but here’s the source I used anyways. $80,000: https://www.l3airlineacademy.com/us-career-programs/pilot-training-cost

It's more of unequal distribution of pilots. In Asia (except Japan), the training costs for pilots are very high compared to average incomes especially in countries like India, China. Hence, more foreign pilots are hired due to unavailability of local pilots which leads to shortage elsewhere. If entry barriers are reduced, not only more people will become pilots but salary pay can also be reduced which also means lower ticket prices &/or more profitability for airlines which in turn will further expand the aviation market. The Indian aviation market is growing at 26% YoY & will become world's 3rd largest by 2020 & hence the demand for pilots is only going to increase further. The private jet market is another area which will also require new pilots.

In India, even for ATRs, there aren't pilots so airlines like Indigo have deferred the deliveries till the time they find pilots !! Over 1100 aircrafts are on order, atleast 900+ being A320s & B737s with A320neos the maximum. Other 200 includes ATR72, Q400 & wide body aircrafts like A330neo, B787.

You don't want pilots to race thier carreers - think safety. Thar's why its a crisis, otherwise the problem would have been manageable. P.S. "profitable routes"?) transport is not for profit. It is not intended to even break even.

Think about how ridiculous it is to say that paying higher wages isn't the solution because it would cut into profits. THIS is why the average worker's wages have been declining, and most wealth goes to the top few. Those routes are profitable with well compensated pilots - just not WILDLY profitable. We've all quietly accepted this garbage and repeat it everywhere. Race to the bottom.

I was in flight school. It's roughly 10k for basic pilots another 10k for instrument and a minimum of 25 for com licence. You technically do not need collage with enough flight time as collage only waives the must have 1500 hrs rule to be hired. It's a tech school so it is very difficult to get education loans for (but not impossible). Just because you have all your certs doesn't mean you will be hired. After you get your comm licencee you are still need to have a total of 1500 hours (with no collage) to be hired by the airlines. Most company's really only look at POC time (pilot in command) and don't care about total flight time. The pilot shortage is the result of the current massive barrier's of entry. It's not worth it even if you get a job they pay you peanuts until 5 years before FORCED RETIREMENT. Why be a pilot when you can make more money working less hours in safer conditions?

Here is the problem with commercial aviation. I am saying this as a former instructor and Lear pilot. It's a pyramid. The people at the bottom are low paid instructors, pipeline inspection pilots, small 135 ops pilots (and small scheduled outfits like Cape Air) and the like. Then, there is the next tier of multiengine piston and turbine operators. Multiengine time in your logbook essential, and the operators have no trouble finding pilots who will almost fly for free because they need that ME time. As they move up in those operations, they get multi PIC time, which is also needed. Now, if they have great connections and are in a protected class like a minority or female gender, they can get a good corporate job. Corporations love to show the people that fly with them that their company is "diverse." So, most of you other guys can forget about that job. Now, you move up to the Skywest and other "connection" operators like the former Colgan Brothers or some other outfit using misleading paint on their airplanes. If you keep your nose clean and keep your medical, you can finally get into a wide body cockpit where you will make about 40% in real purchasing power that a Delta captain made in 1980. So, there is no "pilot shortage." There IS a BIG shortage of people who are willing to do this job for the money being offered, and that will only get worse. There is a lesson here: if you love to fly, fly for the military or rent a Cessna and fly for fun. Working as a pilot is just plan (plane) not worth it anymore.

I spent time in the military as a flight surgeon, so that makes me dually qualified to say the following: don't be a pilot and don't be a doctor. Live in your parent's basement for as long as you possibly can. Think I'm joking? One headache after another. Not like Top Gun. Can't really buzz tower unless you want a BCD. 8 hours bottle to throttle made it slightly more bearable (12 depending on when served). Not worth it. Looks like I picked a bad time to quit sniffing glue.

You're about 50% too low for pilot training costs. On the other hand, you are also a bit low on starting salaries (though they are still too low). Because of the pilot shortage, the regionals (and majors) HAD to increase their starting salaries. One way to help alleviate the pilot shortage would be to bump out the mandatory retirement age from 65. Another would be to not allow the majors the ability to use regionals as a "farm" for low pay pilots. If they fly under a major's name, they need to be on the major's pay scale. Write your congressman! (not that that ever does any good...) From experience, I know a lot of pilots who have quit the airlines for a non-flying job. Besides the pay issues, it's the quality of life that is a huge problem. As you showed, unless VERY senior, a pilot lives out of his suitcase for 4 or 5 days at a time, away from family. That used to not be a problem because then they could have a week off before going on again. But in the last several decades, the airlines have cut 'off' days more and more, requiring pilots work more 'on' days. Very low quality of life. Pilots measure quality of life by number of days (and nights) at home with the wife and kids. Good pay is only part of the equation.

One solution is to eliminate pilots altogether, just have people on the ground directing the aircraft, and enough technology on-board to safely fly the plane if ground connection is lost. Basically extend existing UAV technology to passenger planes.

Way more people are flying today, yet airlines have reduced the fares and the pilots are the ones who are shorted! Shouldn't be that way! Airlines are putting more rows in their aircraft, compressing seats so that it isn't very comfortable anymore, but they want to haul more people for more money! Flying used to be a privilege and a classy way to travel, elegant, and comfortable. No more, just ANYONE can and does fly now, and that has brought the class of fliers WAY DOWN! Now, I only take red-eyes if I can't fly myself, so I don't have to put up with screaming kids and obese, smelly people oozing over into my space! Too bad, really!

Hey all. So here’s the real reason. Aviation sucks. Is way too expensive to get into. Figure around $200k in us to get the rating. Now, getting the rating is all fine and dandy but for 1500 hours. You can’t get a real job with it. You will be a flight instructor making $10 and hour or some stupid shit until you have 1500 hrs. So when you finally reach 1500 hours, you can get a FO regional job for $21k a year about.. still not starved to death yet?? Oh sorry I forgot you cannot voice a maybe unpopular opinion, have a nasty divorce(as if you could afford to be married to begging with) or anything because if someone doesn’t like you and reports you to the FAA for any reason. You’re done it almost impossible to get in the air again. And forget about fellow aviators helping you with hard times. Absolutely no honor or loyalty to this group whatsoever. So let’s say you go they years of BS, ramen noodles, being broke and putting up with shady flight schools, instructors and all that and you have a job. Good luck having a life. You’ll be gone all the time, very little freedom, ugly flight attendants, and still making mid 20 salaries, never hardly seeing home, family, friends etc. and forget it all if you stand up to pee. The girls have first dibs because we’ll. They can maneuver in ways a guy can’t in a male controlled industry. Cheers. To the vid maker. Tell the truth!!!

There actually is no shortage of "Pilots", since this video seem to focus only on the US, the existence of Unions at major US airlines is the main reason barrier of entry is so hard. It's all about taking care of seniority in unions. They make it hard for new people to get in and once you get in you have the worst shifts and rates until you spend enough time and the more senior members retire and then you would ride up seniority where you would pick whatever shift you want and be paid the highest. If you get rid of the airline unions and airlines start hiring at "market rate" this artificial "pilot shortage" would not exist in the US and our airlines tickets would be also be cheaper.

No, just no. First of all in the UK you don't even need A levels for most flight schools. Also this may include doing it modular which means working paying working paying. Finally you may join the air force do minimal time there which normally is 9 - 12 years then finally convert the military license into a ATPL, this may not be the same in the US but there isn't a point making a video on how you need to spend over 200,000$ because... you don't, In fact over here in the UK and Europe you can probably do it for just about £80,000 or even £70,000.

It's more of unequal distribution of pilots. in Asia (except Japan), the training costs for pilots are very high compared to average incomes especially in countries like India, China. Hence, more foreign pilots are hired due to unavailability of local pilots which leads to shortage elsewhere. If entry barriers are reduced, not only more people will become pilots but salary pay can also be reduced which also means lower ticket prices &/or more profitability for airlines which in turn will further expand the aviation market.
