Covid-19 has had a devastating effect on flight crew, with tens of thousands around the world laid off or furloughed and facing the most uncertain of futures. Together with GOOSE Recruitment, we have surveyed more than 2,500 of them, from newly-qualified officers to veteran captains, and in this webinar we discuss the results and implications for the industry.

  • How many of these pilots are out of work?
  • How are they dealing with unemployment, and what do they feel about their prospects?
  • How many have switched or plan to switch careers?
  • What has been the impact on their mental health, and when – if ever – do they anticipate a return to normality

Each pilot has a story to tell. Together, their responses give us an exclusive and comprehensive snapshot of how the pilot community globally has been impacted by the crisis. Our expert panellists from GOOSE Recruitment will explain what the findings tell us, with an opportunity for you to ask questions during the live one-hour event.
