@ByERussell In November, regional airline CEOs said that in addition to pilots, they faced a shortage of trained maintenance technicians. The FAA just awarded $5 million in grants towards expanding the pool of aviation maintenance technicians.
@ByERussell “I think we’re looking at one of those pivotal moments in aviation that, if Boeing doesn’t respond, they’re going to lose 10, 15 points of market share,” says Aboulafia on the middle of the market. Airbus is running away with it right now. #TRBAM.
@ByERussell Many rightly point out that Boeing has been at a “pivotal” moment on a new mid-market aircraft for a while, the difference now is they need to make a decision — and fast — or potentially face significant additional share loss to Airbus.
@ByERussell One answer to the U.S. regional pilot shortage: Crew members from Australia. But that has created a legal storm with major pilots unions for startup Breeze Airways, writes @BrianSumers.
