Aviation Engineer Shortage restricts Industry

Scott Drach of Boeing said that “When we look across the aerospace industry and our ageing workforce we are concerned about the number of engineers that are coming out of universities in the US and abroad, and how we will fill the talent pipeline and transition the knowledge that experienced engineers have. The competition for top engineering talent is something we are keenly aware of. We are spending time and energy on this to make sure we maintain our long-term competitiveness. Our bias is not to take people from the US and move them abroad, we look in the local market first. So our strategy in the UK is to hire from the UK, to create a greater local presence.”
