The cause of the initial pilot shortage isn’t going away. Sixty-five is rolling around for many pilots whether there’s a pandemic or not, so they’re going to retire anyway. Many other pilots may take early retirement. The younger generation are the ones airlines think are the ones worth investing in.
Know this, the FAA will not reduced the required minimum flight hours. You probably will still have to spend a minimum of 3-5 years flying for a regional airline or a freight operation until you get enough turbine hours.

Drones are as commonplace as chairs in an office. If you do not currently hold a FAA Commercial Drone Pilot License, you should think about training now! his will give you a leg up on your competition in the job market.
OSHA uses drones with cameras to conduct at least nine inspections of employer facilities after obtaining permission from the companies’ management. The drones were most frequently deployed following accidents at work-sites that were considered too dangerous for OSHA inspectors to enter, including an oil drilling rig fire, a building collapse, a combustible dust blast, an accident on a television tower and a chemical plant explosion.

The drone industry is growing by leaps and bounds! The FAA predicts the industry will need approximately 322,000 drone pilots by 2022. For a drone pilot, no day is ever the same. Most drone pilots work as freelance contractors, flying drones for major companies and small businesses. They’re using drones for everything from gathering thermal images of the ground to producing 3-D models of buildings. State Farm understands the value of adding drones and they are actively recruiting license remote Drone pilots. Read more about their pilots. It’s time to start your training now.
