There is a wealth of job prospects for graduates of aviation technology programs. The demand for major airline pilots is steadily increasing and the demand for general aviation positions are at an all-time high. The use of interstate commerce has increased the demand for cargo pilots. And, a shift in business travel from the major airlines to executive-size aircraft has created a new increase in the number of pilot jobs available. These changes in airline passenger and cargo traffic, along with an expected wave of retirements, will provide many job opportunities for new pilots and for flight instructors at all levels of the aviation industry.
