Future Demand for Aviation Jobs Puts Pressure on Industry

Aircraft dispatcher jobs are amongst the projected high-demand jobs in the aviation industry in coming years. The issue is that current projections point to a higher demand for aviation jobs than supply. This is good news from students attending, or hoping to attend, aircraft dispatcher school. However, it is worrying to aviation industry higher-ups.

Across college campuses, aviation industry representatives are attempting to recruit the next aviation engineers, aircraft dispatchers, and pilots.

Unfortunately, retirement may be a slight problem. The number of airline jobs, like flight engineers that will soon become available, cannot be satisfied with the low and slow entry-level rate. There simply aren’t enough graduates in the field to take these jobs.

This quote from the Aviation Pros website says it all:

“Across the country, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics counted about 139,000 aircraft mechanics and technicians — 77 percent over the age of 50, and less than 2 percent under the age of 30.”

There is an obvious advantage to higher demand and lower supply, and that advantage is going to be in favor of aircraft dispatchers. Those who attend aircraft dispatcher school are in a better place to negotiate their starting salary as they take their pick of all the aircraft dispatcher jobs that are available.

Sheffield School of Aeronautics is an aircraft dispatcher school that has a long-standing relationship with all major airlines. Dispatchers who graduate from Sheffield have access to a job posting board with all the details regarding aircraft dispatcher jobs in the United States.

Be a part of the next generation of aviation experts!
