Many pilots in the association have taken up other jobs, and some have even started their own businesses, Capt Arya says. He laments that the civil aviation ministry wasn’t doing anything about it.

“There are 3,000 vacancies for the posts of Assistant Traffic controllers in the Airport Authority if India. The ministry can try its level best to fill these posts and revive the aviation industry,” he says recalling that during a similar situation between 1975 and 1997, Air India and Indian Airlines accommodated jobless pilots as flight dispatchers and operators.
Billboard quoted that in post no 55.They are already doing what they can to help themselves.But when they feel frustrated and look for support on sites like these, all they get is insults.

I respect all pilots regardless of their experience.Hats off to all of you for taking a plunge in this career.

But if you haven't taken the plunge already.....Dont do it.
