Boeing has predicted the Asia Pacific region will require
hundreds of thousands of new commercial airline pilots and maintenance
technicians over the next 20 years to support airline fleet modernization and
the rapid growth of air travel.


The 2012 Boeing Pilot & Technician Outlook, a respected
industry forecast of required aviation personnel, calls for 185,600 new pilots
and 243,500 new technicians in the Asia Pacific region through 2030. China will have
the largest demand in the region, needing 71,300 pilots and 99,400 technicians
over the next 20 years.


"Some airlines are already experiencing delays and
operational interruptions because they don’t have enough qualified pilots.
Surging economies in the region are driving travel demand. Airlines and
training providers need new and more engaging ways to fill the pipeline of
pilots and technicians for the future."


The Boeing outlook projects that;


North East Asia will need
18,800 pilots and 26,500 technicians over the next 20 years.

South East Asia will require 51,500 pilots and
67,400 technicians.

The Oceania region will need 12,900 pilots and
17,100 technicians


South West Asia will need 31,000 pilots and 33,100
