Nov. 12, 2020, © Leeham News: A new on-line newsletter, Future Aviation/Aerospace Workforce News, was launched last week focusing on industry regulatory, corporate, training, recruitment and retention challenges.
Created by Kathryn Creedy, a decades-long aviation writer and a contributor to LNA, the newsletter tackles workforce issues that long have received superficial coverage.
Boeing, for as long as can be remembered, issued annual forecasts about the need for pilots and mechanics over the next decade. As the workforce aged, the numbers grew in each category to hundreds of thousands.
The regional airline industry has long had challenges finding pilots.
Now, with COVID-19, cutbacks and bankruptcies upend the workforce.
Creedy’s new publication tackles these issues and more.
The twice monthly subscription news site will cover, among other topics:
After a five year hiatus, Chris Sloan’s archive of aviation history, TheAirchive.Net, returns.
Airchive is built largely around Sloan’s own archive of more than one million. These include, he says, “vintage timetables, route maps, brochures, historic flights, airport terminals, airplane cabins, virtual tours of airline HQ’s, bricks and mortar museums, final assembly lines, pics of airplane graveyards, models o’ plenty, safety cards, menus, and of course special flights and events. You name it, you search it. You browse for it. It’s probably in there.”
TheAirchive.Net is free.
