Worst Jobs Numbers Since November 2001
Reflecting the slumping economy, airline pilot hiring hit an
all-time low in November, adding only 133 new pilot jobs for the
month according to AIR, Inc. The airline industry hasn't seen pilot
hiring numbers this low since November 2001, two months after the
9/11 terrorist attacks.
Out of the 175 airlines reporting, only 54 of them were hiring.
National carriers, who haven't led in hiring since July of this
year, were back on top adding 62 pilots to their flight decks,
followed by the Non-Jet Operators with 20 and the Jet Operators
finished in third with 13 new pilot positions for the month. For
the second month in a row, there was no hiring activity by any of
the 15 Major airlines.
Pilot furloughs continued to increase, from 4,052 in October to
4,466 in November.
For whatever jobs that are still out there... AIR, Inc plans to
hold an Airline Pilot Job Fair in Atlanta in or around March
