- Total Time
I was just reading the paper and opened up the little Parade magazine thing. A little snipet says "Pilots Needed: In the next decade 40,000 pilots will turn 60 and face mandatory retirement." Then it goes on saying how even more pilots will leave the airlines to become personal pilots for the wealthy. Anyhow it turns out to be an ad for the Be A Pilot program. I used to believe this pilot shortage thing when I first got interested in flying, but I don't buy it anymore. How can they get away with saying this?
