Aviation Recruitment Reaches Unprecedented Heights in October
In the past month, JSFirm.com, a free online platform for job seekers and employers in the aviation business, has seen an 11.5 percent growth in job postings as well as a 40–percent rise in employer management. Additionally, job searches have increased by 66 percent and
over 270,000 pilots have requested to be contacted for job notifications. Sam Scanlon of JSFirm.com has reported that the rate of hiring is steadily increasing, with job postings being largely unaffected by economical factors such as inflation.
Scanlon states that we assist companies in recognizing potential employees and then encourage them to apply for the company’s job openings. This has led to an increased number of applications. We also provide information about the company’s offerings such as sign–on
bonuses, work schedules, and housing, which has made it difficult for companies to stay competitive.
According to Boeing’s Pilot and Technician Outlooks latest estimations, a need for 602,000 new pilots, 610 new maintenance technicians and 899,000 new cabin crew members is projected in order to sustain the global commercial fleet over the next 20 years. Additionally, Boeing’s reports have slightly lowered the number of mechanics and pilots predicted to be required by 2040, according to Scanlon.
Demands Are Being Made Towards Flight Schools
Ken Byrnes, the College of Aviation’s department chair and assistant dean, claims, “Frontloading the program with VR in this way also builds students’ confidence and reduces their anxiety, which is the main barrier to learning, before they ever set foot in a flight deck.
That’s why the university is renewing its commitment to VR this fall, adding two additional simulation stations that will increase the lab’s total from eight to 10 units.” He continues, “Essentially, we’ve increased capacity by increasing efficiency. When students are in these virtual environments, it is real to them. They sacrifice nothing in terms of educational quality.”
ERAU claims that the amount of time student pilots took to make it to their solo flight was reduced to 30% with the help of VR training regimen.
