“Your childhood dreams could be well within reach, if you get the right training,” is how an article I read today began. The article points to the appeal of well-paying careers that are available in the transportation industry today.
“The transportation industry is expected to add 417,000 jobs nationally by 2022, according to a report issued on Tuesday by the U.S. Departments of Transportation, Education, and Labor.
The report, “Strengthening Skills Training and Career Pathways across the Transportation Industry,” identifies “hot spots” for employment in transportation by industry subsector, occupation, career area and geography. It also identifies good-paying, high-demand transportation jobs and details what kind of education and experience are necessary to get them.”
The report points out the airline industry’s dire need for important personnel such as Airline Dispatchers as well, but the career in transportation that pays the best and is the most interesting by far is flying for the airlines. The worldwide shortage of airline pilots has created many opportunities for people who are willing to train to capture those careers. This new generation of airline pilots will have very interesting and lucrative careers as a result.
The pilots who complete their flight training and experience-building first will beat their counterparts to these airline jobs and be ahead of them for the rest of their careers. The direct path from zero flight-time to a career flying for the airlines is one that begins the first day training in ATP’s Airline Career Pilot Program. Get there first with ATP.
