The giant sucking sound that pilots love

We have written here about the giant sucking sound in India and China. The pilot vacuum in those countries is attracting pilots from as far away as Brazil. Now this – African governments have been challenged to find a way to stem the tide of staff recruited away from the continent’s airlines to work for larger carriers. Members of the African Airlines Association (AFRAA) say the continent is losing skilled professionals at an alarming rate to carriers from the Middle East. “Highly skilled manpower is required to operate a safe, sustainable and efficient airline,” the association noted during its general assembly in Cairo. “The development of air transport and the continued operation of African carriers will be adversely affected if the flight of skilled and professional manpower is not checked.”
