Letter from the Publisher


Dear readers,

Travel season is here with the airports and airplanes fuller than ever before, plus the weather is already causing delays and cancellations across the country. Staffing shortages continue which certainly don’t help the delay issues. From pilots and flight attendants to gate agents and rampers, almost all the positions in U.S airlines (except maybe CEO) seem to have vacancies. If you are still looking for that dream pilot career – the one you’ve been craving since you first looked up and saw an airliner cutting a thin, bright white contrail through the beautiful blue sky – this might be your lucky year. 

Aero Crew News and Aero Crew Solutions have been receiving record numbers of requests to help companies find and hire pilots. Additionally, companies are requesting exemptions from the FARs and lawmakers have drafted a potential “age-67 rule.” As always, our biggest concern is for safety; an area on which we cannot compromise. On these topics, I’ll leave my other random thoughts for the flight deck, but I would love to hear your thoughts/comments. I invite you to email me directly at craig.pieper@aerocrewnews.com. 

Fly safe,

Craig Pieper
