Aviation industry giant, Boeing, see a lot of positive things in aviation in the Asia Pacific region. It is here, Boeing says, that the largest demand for new civil aviation personnel will arise in the next 20 years.
The numbers that have been projected are highly motivating for the aviation sector in the Asia Pacific region.
It says 33% of the global demand for pilots will come from this region, along with 34% for technicians and 36% for cabin crew members.
This industry forecast on demand for new aviation personnel were released by 2018 Boeing Pilot and Technician Outlook.
So, why Boeing is interested in making such a forecast?
The reason is simple my dear readers, more civil aviation personnel means more demand for airplanes.
In a way Boeing is saying that there will be considerable demand for commercial airplanes in the Asia-Pacific region in the next 20 years.
And the numbers forecasted by the report make the picture clear.
In the next 20 years, 40% demand for all new passenger airplanes will come from airlines in the Asia-Pacific region.
So what else is there in this forecast report from Boeing?
- In the next 20 years nearly 240,000 pilots will be required in the commercial aviation sector
- Demand for commercial technicians will be around 242,000. Unfortunately, with commercial airplane manufacturers wanting to aircraft that requires less maintenance, the demand for technicians will slow down in the coming years.
- And yes, there will be demand for cabin crew as well to around 317,000.
So which region will come out with maximum demand for commercial aviation personnel?
Many of you can guess it right, it is, China! This country will have maximum demand for pilots, technicians and cabin crew in the whole of region.
Demand from rest of Southeast Asia is only half of what it is from China.
