FEMALE PILOT STATISTICS

LET'S FIX THIS TOGETHER!

 

According to the 2018 U.S. Airmen Statistics, female pilots represent a mere 7% of all licensed pilots. That's only 46,463 out of 633,317.

 

The airline industry continues to experience global shortages in the number of certified pilots. According to Statista, "in the next 20 years, airlines in North America alone are going to be in need of around 117,000 new pilots. Projected shortage of airline pilots in the U.S. is expected to increase to over 2,000 pilots by 2025, compared to the recorded pilot deficit of 155 in 2016"
