Report highlights risk of skills shortage


A new study has warned the business aviation sector to prepare for a critical skills shortage. The study was conducted on behalf of the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) by Korn Ferry Hay Group with the support of Booz Allen Hamilton.

“This study is a warning that we need to raise awareness among our members and in the wider industry and find ways to attract more talent to the sector,” said Brandon Mitchener, CEO of the EBAA.

“This includes developing a compelling brand proposition for the sector, concerted talent marketing activities, initiatives to attract more women, and a sector-wide information plan.”

The report found “little awareness of workforce shortages within business aviation”, along with increased demand for highly skilled professionals, and warned that regional differences in demand are set to increase rapidly.
