Note: Unfortunately there are no reliable orders that I can find for UPS, so this is more of a Retirement based Hiring Analysis. Also due to their being no forecasted fleet replenishment plan I opted to not apply a GDP increase to this airline. If anyone has better Intel please don’t hesitate to email me and I will include this.

These estimates also assume each pilot would make it to mandatory retirement age, and that the current ratio of pilots/aircraft will remain the same.

Each table includes what the estimated fleet number is for the start of the year, and then through scheduled aircraft delivery’s and retirements, what the end of year fleet size should be roughly. We can then apply the airlines pilot/aircraft ratio to know how many additional pilots are needed for the airline growth. After this number we can add the number of mandatory retirements and come up with the estimated amount pilots the airline will need for airline growth and Pilot Attrition.
