The Pilot Survey

We initiated the first global Pilot survey in collaboration with FlightGlobal in 2019. We compiled this unique report to establish and highlight trends from a Pilot’s perspective. We use this annual survey to uncover trends in employment, careers, reward, confidence, stress and the attractiveness of the profession.
