Pilots in the Middle East
There is an impending problem of inadequate and gradual reduction of the number of civil aviation pilots in the Middle East and the Gulf Region. It is a matter of contention to try and establish the approach that can be used to elevate the demand for pilots within the next 20 years.
The Middle East and Gulf region may have suffered the impacts of successful retirement of pilots without a similar rate of recruitment of new pilot (Pope 2014). The use of a phenomenological approach can serve the purpose of determining the best solution regarding stabilizing the forces of demand and supply of pilots in these regions.
