Boeing released a projection Tuesday showing an ever-growing need for more pilots and aircraft-maintenance technicians worldwide as the aviation industry booms across the globe.

The Boeing forecast pegs worldwide demand over the next two decades at more than half a million new commercial pilots and nearly 600,000 maintenance technicians.

Sherry Carbary, Boeing vice president of flight services, said the supply in the U.S. is currently “keeping up with demand” but that “there could be an issue in some of these developing countries if we don’t come together and deal with it.”

Though Carbary seemed to minimize the risk of a serious pilot shortage ahead, some in the industry fear one developing in high-growth markets overseas and even in the United States.

Seems the pilotless plane is a long way off.

Not quite sure where all these pilots will be flying to and from but clearly we need them, especially if you draw a straight diagonal on a graph.

Anyone see this? It's really interesting.

These guys should earn more than anyone else. I can't imagine another job with so much responsibility. A surgeon only has the responsibility of one person's life in his/her hands at a time. These guys have hundreds of people at a time relying on them each day when the plane flies.
