As you can see, it’s essential that you begin your commercial pilot training now to make sure you take advantage of this incredible demand while it lasts. A bright outlook for the airline industry are purchase orders for more aircraft and the addition of routes. This increase of aircraft and routes means globally airlines are going to need to hire more pilots to not only keep up with the retirement age but the addition of these resources and routes. There is an urgency for flight schools to recruit more student pilots and successfully produce top-quality Commercial Multi-Engine pilots to quickly fill regional airline needs. With pressure to fill open slots, airlines are looking for students that completed their commercial pilot training at a flight school that prepared them for the fast-paced and advanced technical learning environment. This is why Epic has developed our own commercial pilot training programs with the expectations of an airline training program to quickly develop new pilots to professionals.
