ACP122 Why Pilot Salaries Don’t Coincide With A Shortage Of Pilots

by CarlValeri on January 8, 2017

If you learned anything about basic economics, you will understand the concept of "supply and demand." When something is in short supply, the price of the item increases. This can be true for people as well as goods, but how does it work when it comes to pilot salaries when there is a shortage of eligible pilots? Today I am joined by Tom Wachowski of the Private Jet Podcast to discuss this issue, as well as some great listener email about advanced training, converting your licenses from Canadian to the United States, and the best way to clean up a logbook before an interview.
