Boeing: Nearly 500,000 Airline Pilots Will Be Needed Over Next 20 Years

Nearly half a million new airline pilots will be needed in commercial cockpits over the next 20 years according to Boeing, which could be good news for some members of the military here in Eastern Carolina looking for work.

Boeing says expanding economies and a wave of retirements will fuel the need for new pilots.

Boeing executives say airlines in China and India are already facing a pilot shortage, which is creating flight delays. More than 600,000 new aircraft maintenance technicians will also be needed.
