The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that employment for pilots who work in educational services will grow faster than the average rate through 2020. The Federal Aviation Administration has mandated new certification and qualification requirements for pilots in air carrier operations. These new regulations will require pilots to complete additional flight and classroom training, and this will create more opportunities for flight instructors. Demand will also grow for instructors in the U.S. and in emerging markets as a result of an expected pilot shortage in the next decade.
