Enter a career field that’s really taking off! “The airline industry is on the brink of what’s predicted to be the biggest surge in pilot hiring in history…Boeing has forecast a need for 466,650 more commercial pilots by 2029 - an average of 23,300 new pilots a year.” (USA Today)

 Airlines employed almost 6,000 more people in May 2012 than they did in May of last year, according to statistics released by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The ground school course is the first step to becoming a pilot and gaining the knowledge needed to begin a new career in the aviation industry.
