Being a pilot is a dream for many children at school. Yet when a child says that is what they want to become, an adult will often be the one to let them know it might not be possible. Instead the child is encouraged to be a teacher, doctor, bank cashier, shop assistant or similar.
If you had dreams of being a pilot when you were a child, then maybe now is your chance?
The aviation industry is booming and vacancies in this area are on the rise. Following your dreams and becoming a pilot is looking like an increasingly popular option for many children that had hopes of becoming a pilot when they grew up.
Research by aerospace giant Boeing has reported that the world will need around an extra 637,000 pilots by 2036. People are falling in love with flying overseas for their holidays. Holidays are now more affordable than ever before and people can afford to treat themselves to one or more holidays by place each year.
It is expected there will be a 40% growth in travel demand in expanding markets like Asia and the Pacific over the next 20 years.
However it isn’t just for holiday goers and travellers that pilots are needed. In early February last year delivery giant UPS ordered 14 Boeing 747 freighter aircraft in response to a 9% increase in freight demand that they experienced in 2017.
