FWIW, the small sampling of my corporate sources tells me they are seeing people leave corp to go Part 121...and corp flight depts increasing compensation in response. :cool:

The pilot shortage continues to grow, and the college degree becomes less and less important in the hiring decisions. I see every one except DAL has moved it to the preferred option. But even DAL is taking pilots without degree with their flown through programs

Seats WILL be filled. All those peripheral non-regulatory requirements are just ink spots on paper. The same people who put them there can change them.

I think more and more corporate flight departments will continue to be farmed out to fractionals.

Interview with the head of a corporate pilot headhunter, API:

Quickly to the subject at hand, she confirms the shortage is real, causing major disruptions within business-aviation flight departments, altering careers and “is the No. 1 topic in every pilot lounge.”

Ultimately, she would like to see a national pilot training academy established with rigorous standards and financed by the aviation industry.
