Indian aviation sector faces tremendous shortage of pilots; can hit pace of growth
Government's UDAN "Regional Connectivity Scheme" is also playing an important role in the growth of the sector. It has this objective: "Let the common citizen of the country fly". But this fleet growth is also pointing towards a significant problem that the Indian carriers will have to face in the times to come. The problem is related to a shortage of pilots.
Considering the growth in the sector, airlines like Indigo and SpiceJet have placed orders for as many as 1,000 planes, which will be added to their fleet gradually. Image source: Zee Business
