When the pandemic first struck, hundreds of flights were grounded and airports all over the world closed their doors. With vaccinations now rolling out, Malaysia’s recovery plan has been set in motion and is progressing.
Soon, we can look forward to visiting friends and family, crossing borders and travelling to other countries again. When that happens, the aviation industry is expecting a boom in business – and aviation graduates will be very much in demand. Here are five reasons why you should become a pilot today:
1. Professional License Personnel Shortage after Covid-19
According to management consulting company, Oliver Wyman, and United Airlines, there will be a pilot shortage after the pandemic. This is already seen in countries that have opened its borders and the pilot shortage will continue to grow as more countries start allowing international travel.
It is predicted that there will be a global shortage of 30,000 pilots and could increase to as high as 50,000 by 2025. North America, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East will see the most extensive shortage of pilots. Along with the pilot shortages, the trend is also likely to affect Licensed Aircraft Maintenance personnel.
2. It's challenging and rewarding
Like any occupation, to become qualified, you’ll have to work for it. Courses such as the Professional Licence programmes offered by ADMAL Aviation College will not only help you achieve your goal of gaining a career in the aviation industry but will provide you with the necessary fundamentals to be the best at your job.

3. You'll Gain a New Respect for the World Around You – and the Flying Machine
If you’ve ever been on an airplane, you’ll know instantly the magnificence and beauty of soaring high above the clouds. You’ll understand the freedom that flying gives, allowing you to visit numerous places all over the globe with a much shorter travel time than many of our forefathers.
Now, imagine flying from the cockpit and being in control. As a pilot, you’ll gain a new understanding and realisation on the magnitude of flight and the privilege of being a pilot. Up there, the world really is your oyster.
4. You'll Join an Elite Group
The people in the aviation industry are of a different breed. Pilots are well respected; engineers are highly appreciated for what they do; and technicians are admired for their skill. When you join the aviation industry as a pilot, you instantly join a community that transcends national borders and cultures.
As a new pilot, you are welcomed into the family by colleagues who will embrace, help, support and encourage you throughout your journey. It’s a bond that is made not by blood, but by comradeship.
5. The “Office” View Is Unlike Any Other
Until you've seen the world from the cockpit at 1,000 feet, you have no idea what you're missing. It's magical, thrilling and a marvel to behold. With a two in one programme, a Diploma in Aviation Management with Private Pilot License as your starting point, you can potentially see it every day when you go to work.
