The pilot population is shrinking
Every year fewer people complete their training to earn their license and fulfill their dreams of flight. With flight schools relying on the cyclical demands of the airline industry for customers, the future is uncertain.
Stop being confined by the shackles of tradition. Customer tastes have changed in the last fifty years and you shouldn’t have to struggle because the status quo is no longer working.

Do you have the digital tools you need to survive?
According to Redbird Flight Simulations¹, flight schools that aren’t prepared to reach an increasingly digitally savvy audience are going to struggle.
The larger [flight training organizations] strengthened in 2020, and the smaller ones weakened. Without substantial changes, this trend is likely to continue in 2021, and many small and independent providers will be acquired or go out of business. … As the consumer base for flight training shifts younger and more digitally savvy, this area will continue to factor into who wins and loses in the industry.
