In this section of the site, we summarize the most important news from the aviation industry, education industry, and our own company.

The urgent need for more (and better) training

As time goes by and we learn more about the causes of air crashes, we should see a corresponding reduction in the number of crashes. Instead the data is showing a disturbing stability from year to year. In this short article, we will explore why this is happening and what can be done about it.

Not all accidents happen in flight

Mother Nature doesn't even pretend to be friendly. Every now and then, she will give us a good shake up to remind us of her power. A tempest in Brazil this week was one such reminder that caught the Air Force off guard.

The contribution of Human Factors to air safety

This extensive case study of the crash of AA965 explains the role of Human Factors in air accidents, and shows how it is possible to mitigate the risks.

Major US airlines drop degree requirement

Over the past four decades, major airlines in the US have evolved policies requiring First Officer candidates to have a degree in addition to their pilot credentials. In the wake turbulence created by Covid-19, a new crisis emerges, leaving the industry with a shortage of aviators. As a result, the major airlines have been forced to relax their restrictive hiring policies in order to attract new recruits.

US opens up new chances

The US labor market has traditionally been a formidable challenge for foreigners seeking work in the country, whether for temporary or permanent residency. However, for the first time in decades, a significant shift is occurring. The US is grappling with labor shortages across a wide range of industries, causing this once-restricted market to crack open, presenting new opportunities. This shift is particularly promising for those with professional skills.

Where have all the pilots gone?

It may seem odd that airlines are complaining about a pilot shortage. After all, you can see planes in the sky every day, and you sure as heck can hear them passing over your house! What you may not know is the aviation industry is massive — much more than just airlines — and it's currently experiencing rapid expansion. This is happening at the same time many pilots are retiring faster than they can be replaced.

Change is on the way

As the world hurtles toward an automated future, the unskilled labor market stands at a crossroads. The rise of automation technologies threatens to reshape industries and redefine work, leaving a pressing question: How can schools prepare their students for a tech-driven future? Let's examine the crucial role schools will play in equipping the workforce of tomorrow.

The rough road to recovery

International aviation was almost devastated by Covid-19, but now travel has returned stronger than ever. However, this recovery is at risk of being hampered by a looming shortage of skilled aviators. More and more experienced pilots are retiring due to age or other factors, and this is happening faster than student pilots are graduating to replace them. How will this affect the future of the aviation industry?

Fresh Perspective Needed

Thailand's technology education system is falling behind that of other developed nations, but the real issue isn't the students; it's a lingering perception among education officials that Thai students lack capacity for tech excellence. In truth, your students may be more capable than you think. Are we overlooking the potential that could give Thais a more active role in the tech revolution?
