The aviation industry is in an expansion phase, with airlines and other aviation related businesses growing, the requirement for skilled aviation professionals both in the air and on the ground will continue to increase. Much of the rapid growth is in specific areas of the world including Asia and the Middle East; and graduates should consider seeking jobs in the International market to take full advantage of the growth in these areas. By 2037 the aviation industry will need more than 2.4 million new aviation personnel (Boeing Pilot and Technician Outlook, 2018).
