College aviation programs are a pilot pipeline
from FLYING Magazine
Anyone who knows the airline industry will agree that it faces one pressing and indisputable issue: High-seniority pilots from the regional airlines are being recruited by the major carriers to crew growing fleets, creating an acute shortage of qualified pilots coming into the regional airline system as first officers. The shortage of qualified pilots in North America is impacting operations in ways no airline has experienced before, but it's a problem many saw coming after the passage of Public Law 111-216, aka the Airline Safety and Federal Aviation Administration Extension Act of 2010, which went into effect on August 1, 2013.
