Career Opportunities

Pilots: There is a current and future demand for pilots in Canada and around the world. With more and more pilots retiring, industry growth and barriers to recruiting new workers, the aviation industry is projected to face a pilot shortage after COVID 19.  

Projections indicate that Canada will face a pilot shortage in the near future:

  • It is estimated that by 2025, Canada will need 15,000 new pilots
  • The pilot shortage across Canada is causing some regional carriers to cancel flights
  • Canada faces a shortage of 3,000 pilots and 55,000 workers overall in the aviation industry by 2025 
  • To meet the demand of the growing air travel industry, Canada should be producing an extra 300 pilots a year 

Don’t want to be a pilot? No Problem! The aviation industry provides multiple other career options! Since Aviation is an international discipline, students equipped with these courses can work directly in the following fields:

  • Passenger Airlines
  • Corporate Airlines
  • Cargo Airlines
  • Safety Management Specialist (required for every airline)
  • Quality assurance Specialist (required for every airline)
  • Drone Operator (future of drone delivery, drone pilots and automated drone industry)
  • Crew Resource Management(course required for every airline in the world)
  • Logistics and Supply Chain

Having the certificate will enable students to progress into management jobs in their chosen discipline.
