I hope this is the case for the European aviation market as well.

I hope so as well. We’ve been seeing the evidence of the mythical pilot shortage that’s been spoken of for a long time now. Even the skeptics will agree that the majors are hiring up regional captains in large numbers, and in turn the regionals are finally beginning to offer acceptable starting wages for candidates that are carrying thousands of dollars in student loan debt for their educations. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, let’s hope it shines on all of us for a while.
