The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that job growth for all types of pilots will be at an average rate through 2018. However, the department also notes that the growth rate depends a great deal on both the pilot's specific occupation and the overall condition of the economy. When the economy is bad, fewer people will be able to afford such expenses as flying lessons. With a decrease in student enrollment, flight schools will hire fewer instructors. Additionally, instructors who are working will be more likely to keep those jobs than to move into other positions, such as airline pilot, and make way for new flight instructors.
