Aviation

Aircraft manufacturers have estimated that by 2020, there will be a major shortage of over 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.

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