CAA: Pilots can hold both UK and EASA license

LONDON - Return path to a British license: the UK Civil Aviation Authority has launched a "simplified process" to allow pilots who transferred their licence and medical certificate to an EU member state in preparation for the end of the transition period to get their UK licence back.

Thousands of pilots transferred their documents to European member states in preparation for the end of the transition period in order to allow them to continue operating EU-registered aircraft.

Now that the UK has left the European aviation system, pilots are able to hold both a UK and European licence - something that was not possible under European regulations.

The new process is available to any pilot who held an EASA flight crew licence before the end of the transition period.

"I am really pleased we are able to offer this simplified route for pilots wishing to hold both a UK and EASA licence," CAA Director Rob Bishton said. "We know it was a tough decision for many pilots when they transferred their licences to another European member state and hope they will make use of this opportunity."

CAE expects pilot job market to recover by late 2021

LONDON - Flight training provider CAE expects a robust return of pilot demand as early as late 2021. According to its recently updated market outlook, the global airline pilot population will grow from 333,000 in 2019 to 426,000 by 2029 - with a wave of retirements brightening career prospects for young pilots.

 

CAE market outlook 2020

Covid-19 turned to pilot job market from boom to gloom as airlines are forced to keep their fleets grounded furlough staff. Yet, the Canadian flight training provider sees limited long-term effects of the current crisis on pilot career prospects.

"CAE’s analysis shows that the fundamental factors influencing pilot demand prior to the Covid-19 outbreak remain unchanged", the company writes in its recently updated market outlook. "Age-based retirement and fleet growth were, and are expected to remain, the main drivers of pilot demand."

CAE investigated market data as airlines and operators are navigating the current downturn in passenger air travel and are pursuing recovery strategies following the outbreak of the global pandemic.

"Acute demand" for 27,000 new pilots

While the demand for pilots has decreased significantly during 2020, the CAE analysis expects the active pilot population is expected to return to 2019 levels in 2022.

"This is expected to drive an acute demand for pilots, resulting in an estimated short-term need for approximately 27,000 new professional pilots starting in late 2021," CAE said. Among the 333,000 active airline pilots of 2019, 126,000 will retire in this decade. CAE expects industry growth to add another 93,000 airline pilots jobs to the global total by 2029.

Qantas to open two Pilot Academy sites

SYDNEY - The Qantas Group confirmed it will open its Pilot Academy across two locations in regional Australia to meet anticipated pilot demand.

The Academy is part of the Qantas Group’s plans to build a long-term talent pipeline for its airlines and the broader industry to meet the increasing need for skilled aviators. Boeing’s latest estimates show that 790,000 more pilots will be required globally over the next 20 years, around one third of them in Asia Pacific.

Initial plans for the Qantas Group Pilot Academy were announced in February this year and it’s expected the first site will be operational during 2019. Nine regional cities across Australia – Alice Springs, Bendigo, Busselton, Dubbo, Launceston, Mackay, Tamworth, Toowoomba and Wagga Wagga – have been shortlisted. A decision on both sites will be announced in coming weeks, according to Qantas.


Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said that initial scoping had shown that two locations would be needed to reach the Academy’s potential. "We’re aiming to train up to 100 pilots in year one but we expect this to grow to as many as 500 a year and that can only be achieved if we have more than one location," Joyce said. (2018/08/24)
