Everyone knows that the COVID-19 Pandemic caused an unprecedented market downturn for the global commercial aviation industry. Recovery has been difficult and uneven but as vaccination programs prove successful and national restrictions ease, new data demonstrates that the aerospace industry is experiencing an undeniable resurgence. As the world turned its back on overseas travel in early 2020, aerospace industry revenues dropped to a total of $328 billion, around 40% of 2019’s revenues. In fact, ICAO’s latest AIR TRAFFIC report illustrates that in 2020, the aerospace industry saw a decline of 60% in domestic and international passengers in comparison to 2019; specifically, the industry counted a reduction of 2,699 million passengers overall.

Fortunately, thus far into 2021, the aerospace industry has regained 10% of its losses from the previous year. According to Boeing’s 2021 – 2040 COMMERCIAL MARKET OUTLOOK, demand for domestic air travel is leading the industry’s recovery. Regional markets are now expected to follow as remaining health and travel restrictions ease; which has led Boeing to forecast that long-haul travel figures will return to pre-pandemic levels by 2023 to 2024. A substantial supply of personnel is required for the industry to prosper, and according to Boeing’s 2021 – 2040 PILOT AND TECHNICIAN OUTLOOK, long-term demand for licensed aircraft engineers is strong; as Boeing estimates that 626,000 engineers and maintenance technicians are needed to support the global commercial fleet between 2021 and 2040

In conclusion, the demand for licensed aerospace engineers will remain strong.

With the aerospace industry being on track to reach its pre-COVID levels, now is the perfect time to embark on a career in Aerospace Maintenance Engineering. By doing so, you will play a significant role in maintaining the industry’s day-to-day functions, whilst having plentiful opportunities to travel and work with interesting people.  

OUR ENGINEERING SCHOOL:

At British School of Aviation, we offer a diverse range of aircraft engineering courses, many of which are due to commence over the following few months. All of our engineering courses are EASA approved. This means that all of our past and prospective students can be confident that their qualifications will be accepted and recognised overseas.

We are proud of the exceptional service that our EASA-approved maintenance training organisation offers both to airlines hoping to outsource their aviation engineering training requirements, and to qualified engineers hoping to upgrade their licenses. Ultimately, we aim to make a career in the aerospace engineering industry accessible to all.

British School of Aviation is always continuing to add PART-147 type-rating courses for Boeing to our timetable, so please do sign up for course updates HERE.
