Boeing Forecasts Demand for 2.1M New Commercial Aviation Personnel

  • 0

Boeing's 2022 Pilot and Technician Outlook (PTO) forecasts demand for 2.1 million new aviation personnel over the next 20 years to safely support the recovery in commercial air travel and meet rising long-term growth.  

The long-term forecast shows that 602,000 pilots, 610,000 maintenance technicians and 899,000 cabin crew members will be needed to support the global commercial fleet over the next two decades. The worldwide fleet is expected to nearly double and grow to 47,080 airplanes by 2041, according to Boeing's recently released Commercial Market Outlook.

This year's PTO represents a 3.4 percent increase from 2021, excluding the Russia region, which is not forecast in this year's PTO due to sanctions that prohibit exports of aircraft manufactured in western countries and market uncertainty. China, Europe and North America represent over half of the total new personnel demand. The fastest growing regions are Africa, Southeast Asia and South Asia, with all three regions expected to grow more than 4 percent over the forecast period.

"As the commercial aviation industry recovers from the pandemic and plans for long-term growth, we anticipate a steady and increasing demand for aviation personnel, as well as the ongoing need for highly effective training," said Chris Broom, vice president, Commercial Training Solutions, Boeing Global Services. "Our customer-centric approach and digital expertise includes a commitment to delivering data driven, competency-based training and assessment solutions as well as technologies that meet the evolving needs of our customers."

New digital solutions to enhance the efficacy and efficiency of training would include immersive learning experiences and virtual learning platforms.

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


New Pilots

New Technicians

New Cabin Crew













Latin America




Middle East




North America




Northeast Asia








South Asia




Southeast Asia

Proudly announce that once more, our Organization was amongst the top players of the aerospace industry at DUBAI AIRSHOW 2019.

During our presence at the exhibition, which took place between the 17th - 21st November, hundreds of participants visited our booth and premises at Silicon Oasis.

On this occasion, JETSTREAM’s CEO Capt. Niskos interviewed by the Arabian Aerospace News, where he focused on the option of maintenance training which are already provided by the Academy in Athens. The courses, furthermore, will be provided at our basis in Dubai.

The team left Dubai more than content, as the interest in our ATO was beyond any expectation, fact which will set the ground for further development and progress.

Greek-headquartered training organisation, JETSTREAM Aviation Academy, is now accepting enrollment for first officer training at its new Silicon Oasis training center in the UAE.

JETSTREAM approved ATO under both the EASA and the UAE - GCAA regulations, has launched its Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) and A320 or B737 type rating course which includes the new requirement of Aircraft Base Training.
Enrollment applications are being accepted for the newly introduced 16-month Airline First Officer course which takes place in Dubai and combines the ATPL, the type rating on Airbus A320 or Boeing B737, and the actual aircraft Base Training.
Successful students will be licensed by two globally leading authorities and will have obtained all these skills and attributes, in all aspects of flying and personal aptitude, required to face and meet the expectations of the demanding aviation industry that will make them attractive for prospect employment by any world-class airline.
Capt. John Diskos the CEO and head of training said: ‘JETSTREAM is the first ATO approved under the new GCAA regulations. The cost effective Airline First Officer course, has been designed for individuals who aim directly to the airline’s pilot seat. The program emphasizes superior aeronautical decision making utilizing advanced aircraft and flight simulation, in a proficiency-based training environment. It is conducted in a controlled environment ideal for the development of critical thinking, and excellence is achieved through the integrated nature of the course for the next generation commercial pilots.
JETSTREAM’s fleet of aircraft and simulators provide the opportunity for students to apply the skills and concepts learned in the ground. ‘We believe that only the most advanced aircraft should be used to ensure the success of students. All training activities are designed using the most advanced concepts in modern-day instruction. New pilots are trained to work together as a crew from the outset using standardized airline call-outs and checklist philosophy. Emphasis is placed on airman-ship and the human factors behind decision-making and conflict resolution.’ said the chief flight instructor (CFI) Capt. E. Andreadis.
Classes begin in September and November 2013.
