PILOT SHORTAGE IN RCAF.

IN OUR LAST edition, Publisher Scott Taylor wrote that Canada needs to become creative in order to deal recruit and retain combat pilots. Throwing bonus cheques at them is not the answer. Several readers responded.

A recent study by Boeing shows that the world population of commercial airliners will double by 2038. RCAF pilot retention/attraction plans must be updated substantially and quickly.

If the RCAF was quicker to update their requirements for vision I would have been in their program. When they did finally I was faced with an option to take a pay cut, hurt the family business, and live on nowhereville with no jobs for the wife. Even then it was a hard decision not to.
