Running out of people – executive shortage is up next for aviation?

Conducted back in 2013, a Forbes survey of Fortune 1000 companies predicted a 30% drop in the number of appropriately aged managers available for leadership roles between 2009 and 2015. It is now becoming clear that the forecast was completely right. CEOs are now in high demand across all sectors, including aviation, forcing top-notch executives to switch industries like socks in order to keep different businesses in line. While reorienting may be easy in some industries, aviation, due to its specifics, may be a tough egg to crack.

Asian aviation remains in the hottest spot over staff demand

Each week, a total of 28 brand new aircraft roll off the assembly lines of major manufacturers. During any given month about 50% of those aircraft crafted by Airbus and Boeing are going to the Asia-Pacific region, according to Flightglobal. Cornered by this remarkable pace, Asian carriers need to gather from 10 to 12 pilots for each new plane.

That’s down from 29 in 2013, 23 in 2012 and 36 in 2011. Nevertheless, the recent tragic events casted a shadow on some of the aviation safety related procedures, namely those concerning pilot mental health evaluation. It appears that even though hundreds of lives are in the hands of an aircraft pilot daily, it is pilots themselves that are responsible for assessing their own mental health.

Literally unmanned – will there be anyone to pilot the commercial drone industry?

Ever since the drone market has started to rapidly grow, it has been constantly surrounded by controversy. For instance, with commercialization of drones, over 42% of Americans are concerned about their privacy. However, while aviation authorities are developing new rules to ensure both safety and privacy standards, it seems that drone-skeptics actually shouldn’t worry too much – at least in a short-term perspective. Without universally accepted regulations the commercial drone segment still has almost no one to pilot it. Even for $100 000 a year.
