Greener pastures for pilots in Asia

Frustration over the inordinate delays in resolving human resource-related issues has led Air India’s pilots to seek greener pastures with international airlines in the Asian region.

Frustration over the inordinate delays in resolving human resource-related issues has led Air India’s pilots to seek greener pastures with international airlines in the Asian region.
The total number of Air India pilots is more than 2,000 out of which 850 are from the erstwhile Indian Airlines and their representative union is Indian Commercial Pilots’ Association (ICPA). According to the aviation industry experts, such pilots would easily find alternative jobs after leaving Air India. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) forecasts that as fleets expand, airlines worldwide will need an average of 49,900 new pilots a year from 2010 to 2030. However, the current annual training capacity is only 47,025.
The ICAO has forecasted that airlines in the Asian region will suffer the brunt of the pilot shortage as carriers like Cathay Pacific, Qantas Airways and Emirates Airlines await deliveries of about 400 aircraft. The resignations followed a March 2010 moratorium on part of their salaries by the airline, claims ICPA.
