Pilot dearth...
...can be a bigger threat to Asia
24/01/2008

It actually is a matter to ponder over, that despite a worldwide growth of airline industry to about more than $400 billion, why is there such a gulf between the need and availability of pilots?

Well, looks like all fingers point to towards the Persian Gulf which has this insatiable appetite for experienced pilots because of its compounding growth in both cargos and passengers. While Brussels Airlines loses about 10 captains a month to the Emirates, Qatar or the Etihad, China too is complaining of the same attrition. Kenya however has other glitches to handle like the cost of training a commercial pilot which almost amounts to Sh three million. India too is no stranger to the pilot drought and the training charges here too are exorbitant.

While in India, Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Akademi charges about Rs 16 lakhs for a CPL and PPL course, in Australia, a Bachelor’s in Aviation in a reputed university like Griffith would mean doling out $12,000-$15,000 per year for a period of three years and the cost becomes steeper in more developed countries. Well, anomalies are many…but aviation calls for bridging the gulf.
