Hummingbird Aviation has been approved to become a Cessna Pilot Center

Certified Training Center for Textron

Hummingbird Aviation has been by Textron and is now a Certified Cessna Pilot Center. Textron, the largest manufacturer of training aircrafts in the United States, has approved our Academy to represent the Textron company and is approved to do all their training.

Being a Cessna Pilot Center allows us to have access to one of the best flight training aircrafts in the United States, the Cessna 172. We strive to keep our fleet uniformed which makes inventory easier and better, and let us have less down-time (maintenance).

“If Cessna, one of the largest aircraft manufacturing companies in the world, finds that Hummingbird Aviation is capable of doing training on their behalf, and represent them, then you – the future pilot, can depend on us too for professional pilot training” said CEO and General manager, Hummingbird Aviation LLC Martin Campbell.

Shrinking Pool of Future Pilots Keeps Major Airlines on Edge

Study shows deficit of 15,000 by 2026 as fewer choose career

After coping with terrorism, bankruptcies and consolidation, the largest U.S. airlines are facing a new problem: They may start running out of pilots in as soon as three years.

That looming pilot deficit will soar to 15,000 by 2026, according to a study by the University of North Dakota’s Aviation Department, as more captains reach the mandatory retirement age of 65 and fewer young people choose commercial aviation as a profession. And that’s in an industry where captains on the biggest international jets average more than $200,000 a year — with some pushing $300,000.

Airlines are responding by changing hiring requirements, boosting signing bonuses at regional carriers they own and partnering with flight schools and university aviation programs.

“Now is the right time to become an Airline Pilot, because there is a significant shortage of pilots in the United States and many countries throughout the world” said CEO and General manager, Hummingbird Aviation LLC Martin Campbell.

US Airlines Facing Major Pilot Shortage Despite Rising Wages

With more than 30,000 airline captains rapidly approaching the mandatory retirement age of 65, and with an insufficient pool of young pilots lurking around ready to replace them, the largest U.S. airlines will start feeling the shortage in as little as three years,Bloomberg News reported this week, citing a study by the University of North Dakota’s Aviation Department.

If the trend doesn’t change quickly, in just 10 years we’ll be 15,000 pilots short of the number needed to sustain current travel routes.

So if you think you’re sitting too long on the tarmac now, just wait till there’s nobody in the cockpit.

“That is one of the things in my job I get to worry about every day and when I go to bed at night,” Greg Muccio, a senior manager at Southwest Airlines Co., told Bloomberg. “The biggest problem is a general lack of interest in folks pursuing this as a career anymore. That’s what puts us in the most jeopardy.”

“Every major we’ve talked to, they are concerned beyond the next three to four years,” said Jim Higgins, the principal investigator on the UND study.

“I can’t stress it anymore, we need pilots now and we need to get then trained. If you are looking for a successful career, being a pilot is one of the best careers you can choose today” said CEO and General manager, Hummingbird Aviation LLC Martin Campbell.
