The US Air Force Is Short More Than One-Quarter Of Fighter Pilots Needed

Apr 17, 2018

For some time now, the US Air Force has been warning about its growing pilot shortage. But a government report has found that the Air Force, Marine Corps, and Navy all have significant shortfalls. The report warns that service branches' stop-gap approaches have created additional problems for pilots. The stop-gaps are hurting quality of life and affecting retention. The Air Force projects its shortfall to last through fiscal year 2023.
