Introduction

T R A I NI NG GUI DE

– ALL THE OPPORTUNITIES If you’re looking to build a career in aviation, a slow browse through the following pages with a pencil and pad will open up many opportunities for you. The years immediately following Covid-19 are going to show tremendous industry growth with the attendant opportunities for a productive and rewarding career in aviation. BEFORE THE ARRIVAL of the Covid pandemic the aviation industry was awash with predictions of a massive impending skills shortage. The Covid pandemic has pressed the pause button on the pending pilot shortage but as the airline industry returns to previous levels of flying the shortage will become more acute than ever. The only way the industry is going to be able to address this pending shortage is by

September 2021

From the front to the rear of an aircraft, and from the ground up to its cruise altitude, there are people, skills and jobs that are the ‘wind beneath the wings’ of the industry. These are the maintenance technicians, ground-

dramatically ramping up training to ensure an ongoing flow of new professionals into the industry.

When you hear the words ‘aviation industry’, the first reaction is to think ‘pilot’. But aviation is an enormous industry and accordingly has a requirement for an imposing spread of skills.

handlers, loadmasters, despatchers, meteorologists, check-in, passenger handling, cabin crew, pilots, traffic controllers,


Pre-Covid, in 2018, Boeing’s Pilot and Technician Outlook projected a demand for 790,000 new pilots over the next 20 years. In five years’ time this demand will become critical as those who left the industry, either due to retirement or for greener pastures, will need to be replaced. Boeing’s number of 790,000 new pilots is double the current workforce and the most significant demand in the Outlook's

labour supply. The forecast also excludes general aviation (GA) requirements which swells the numbers significantly as not every pilot is employed by a carrier, some fly (and own) aircraft purely for small business reasons or the joy of flight. But the support system for GA is as intensive as for commercial carriers with an ever-growing number of aircraft needing pilots, maintenance, traffic control, administration and supply, as well as airfields to land, and on which to be based.

Introduction

administration, caterers – the list is a long one and includes such a wide range of skills that almost anyone can find a suitable aviation career in which to get qualified.

Boeing’s numbers are in line with industry projections from other bodies given to crystal ball gazing, and they all agree on one inescapable fact – we will have to train millions of new people to fill the slots of a skills-hungry industry. And therein lies our biggest challenge – and our biggest problem.

“ we will have to train millions of new people to fill the slots of a s k i l l s -h u n g r y industr y ”

nine-year history. And it’s not only the ‘pointy end’ that will need more people. Maintenance engineer demand is projected at 622,000, and commercial cabin crew a staggering 858,000 people, mostly due to changes in fleet mix, regulatory requirements, denser seat configurations and multi-cabin configurations that offer more personalised service.

NOT JUST PILOTS Collectively, the business aviation and civil helicopter sectors will also demand an additional 155,000 pilots, 132,000 technicians and 32,000 new cabin crew to support business aviation. The demand is being driven by an anticipated doubling of the global commercial airplane fleet, a record-high air travel demand and a tightening

To remain viable in facing the challenge, training organisations are dependant on two main resources: an ongoing flow of dedicated new students and a stable supply of qualified trainers. But most of the potential students are unaware of the career opportunities in aviation. And the qualified trainers are constantly being head-hunted by the industry to fill the jobs for which they’re training the students. This creates a revolving door of instructors and gives training organisation management sleepless nights. And there is no “quick fix’ solution to either of these challenges. Some enterprising organisations have addressed the problem by elevating successful September 2021

student graduates to instructor positions. This, to some measure ‘insulates’ them from the head-hunters as they are often invisible to the industry workplace and can also be contracted to their employer with ‘golden handcuffs’ such as scholarships and student loans.

be applied to skills training under administration by approved Aviation Training Organisations (ATOs).

Amongst all of these is the person who is the jewel in the crown of a training organisation – a dedicated trainer. These are people who derive their personal and career satisfaction, not from doing the job, but from enabling and empowering others to do the job. To a large extent, the success of the training component of

Another huge break for the aviation industry is that there is no special type or basic personality needed for an individual to find a suitable career. The spread of skills demands is so wide that there is likely to be a job for anyone irrespective of their ‘type’. An aircraft maintenance engineer (AME) and a cabin crew member have vastly differing job requirements and accordingly, to be successful, will needs have very differing basic personas and skills.

the aviation industry will rest on the shoulders of the ‘dedicated’ trainers.

‘ Some enter pr is ing organis ations have elevated successful student graduates to inst r uctor pos itions ”

Africa also has a massive opportunity in its extensive smart and eager but relatively unskilled population, and it is here that we should look to bridging the skills gap in the aviation industry. Many Africans are unaware that they could be aviation professionals and those that are, often do not have access to the funds needed for the qualifications. This creates opportunities for a spread of sub-industries to increase awareness that their dream is in fact possible and then supply the funding and support mechanisms while the student qualifies.

There is also scope for public private partnerships (PPP) where governments could unlock some of their higher education budget to

ARE YOU THE RIGHT PERSONALITY TYPE?

The organisations who have participated in this supplement are professional, dedicated entities that offer a wide spread of education opportunities, not only for new incumbents into the aviation industry, but also for those wanting to ‘upskill’ to better and more career fulfilling positions. Many young people (and a few older ones), dream about a career in aviation, and there has never been a better time than now, to take the action to turn those dreams into reality. j

HENLEY AERONAUTICAL INSTITUTE OF LEARNING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC has exposed a glaring inadequacy in pilot training. Highly specialised, high-time crew members suddenly find themselves without work…but more importantly: without a backup qualification to revert to.

One year option: PPL(H) and Higher Certificate in Aviation Management

Henley Aeronautical Institute of Learning in partnership with STADIO Higher Education has recognised the need for high quality, simultaneous dual qualifications within the aviation industry. Our vision is to equip learners at every stage of their aviation career with concurrent, carefully tailored business skills, ensuring that graduates are well-rounded and multi-skilled. Successful STADIO candidates leave the program with dual qualifications:

Initially focused on helicopter pilot training, the goal is to eventually encapsulate a wide variety of aviation training options through unique partnerships with institutions at various junctions of the aeronautical spectrum.

Three year option: CPL(H)/IFR and Diploma in Aviation Management Four year option: Frozen ATPL(H) and Advanced Diploma in Aviation Management

FLIGHT TRAINING SERVICES FLIGHT TRAINING SERVICES (FTS) is a longestablished flight school conveniently based at Grand Central Airport. Being based at Grand Central gives FTS the ability to provide costeffective training which does not require lengthy holds on the ground, as is the case at large and busy airports – and yet Grand Central is still busy enough to make sure that the students learn to cope with a pressurised and demanding air space environment which lays for the foundation for the move up to commercial flying at busy airports. As a measure of the school’s excellence, it has attracted students from all over the world, from places as diverse as Nepal and Egypt. To accommodate international students, FTS has arranged excellent accommodation with full support services, including a bus to transport

students to and from the airport – which is just 10 minutes away. The school’s fleet consists of the universally popular Cessna C172, with fixed and retractable undercarriage, Piper Cherokees and a Twin Comanche for multi-engine training. All these aircraft are excellently maintained, as is evidenced by their high availability rate for training. The school’s owner and manager has established a solid reputation for excellent client service to her students – and this has meant that word of mouth and the power of personal recommendation have been the biggest drivers for the school’s steady growth.

LITSON & ASSOCIATES AVIATION TRAINING LITSON & ASSOCIATES AGREES that ‘There is no time like the present’. With many people in the aviation industry still working from home/not working at full capacity, now could be the perfect time to take advantage of this quieter period and undertake some training to obtain a qualification which previously they may not have had time to do. L&A’s SA CAA approved ATOs scope of training courses includes from the mandatory 5-day Safety Management System and a 5-day Quality Management System and Auditing course to a one-day ERP and Dangerous Goods workshop. NB: Safety Managers working for an RPAS company will need to provide an SMS certificate, and this will form a part of the SA CAA application procedure for an RPAS remote operating certificate (ROC). All L&A open courses (except for SEPT) are currently presented in a ‘virtual’ classroom with

the facilitator on-line at all times. These on-line training classes require a minimum of 4 to a maximum of 16 delegates, enabling everyone to receive the best individual instruction. On-line training course material is emailed to delegates in advance of their course and certificates emailed directly to them once they have successfully completed their course. In-house corporate training courses receive printed manuals and printed certificates at the end of their course. Virtual training allows easy global access to courses at beneficial rates, without the added cost of travel and accommodation. Corporate courses remain L&A’s speciality, and where a classroom can keep to within strict COVID-19 regulatory guidelines, we have resumed in-class corporate training within South Africa and to countries where flights are permitted.
