Boeing Global Services Forecasts 1.2 million pilots and technicians needed by 2036

Posted 25 July 2017 · Add Comment

Now in its eighth year, the outlook is a respected industry study that forecasts the 20 year demand for crews to support the world's growing commercial airplane fleet.

Boeing forecasts that between 2017 and 2036, the world's commercial aviation industry will require approximately:

    637,000 new commercial airline pilots

    648,000 new commercial airline maintenance technicians

    839,000 new cabin crew members

The 2017 outlook shows a slight increase of 3.2 percent for pilots over the 2016 outlook, and a slight decrease in the need for airline maintenance technicians (4.6 percent), primarily driven by the reduction in maintenance hours required on the 737 MAX.

Projected demand for new pilots, technicians and cabin crew by global region for the next 20 years is approximately:
