Aviation

Aircraft manufacturers have estimated that by 2020, there will be a major shortage in excess of 400,000 aviation professionals.  The decreased number of pilots and other industry professionals in training will have a severe impact on future industry employment needs.

Because of changes in military flight programs, most pilots today are trained in expensive civilian training programs thus decreasing the diversity of applicants.  Immediate action is needed to meet current and future demand for aviation professionals in the U.S. and ensure adequate representation for minorities, women, and any qualified individual looking to pursue a career in aviation/aerospace.
