    Will Raising the Retirement Age Solve Staff Shortages?

    Will Raising the Retirement Age Solve Staff Shortages?

    With all the staffing shortages in the airline industry, the mandatory retirement age for airline pilots has been raised from age 65 to 67. Joe and Adam discuss that today and the parallel it has with the switch from 62 to 65 in the past.

    All of the other pilot shortages in the past pales in comparison with what we are experiencing now. There are a lot of problems that could arise from this raising of the retirement age, so Adam and Joe discuss the pitfalls and the ethics we will all be facing.



    In This Episode 

    7:00 - The politics behind the raising of the retirement age

    9:48 - Is the raising of the retirement age going to help with staffing shortages?

    16:08 - The difference between bringing back a retired pilot and a new hire

    24:30 - How staffing shortages shows up differently in the airline industry vs other industries

    36:05 - Why the recession is not going to decrease the amount of demand for air travel

    New Hires Going Straight to Captain Positions?

    It has been a little bit, but we are back. Adam is back after a lot of family time, work time, and recovery time. Matt has also been extremely busy. But we have still taken the time to think about what we see for TPN in the future and our first new correspondent.

    Adam shares some of those plans and the upcoming episode topics today. He also talks about new hires going directly to the left seat at some major airlines.
