The forecasts on the future of commercial aviation are quite positive, being the area of ​​regional aviation the most developed during the last 15 years and the one that demands more specialized pilots.

Only between 2012 and 2017 an average of 100 new routes were created per year, reaching the record of 155 new in 2017. This gives us an idea of ​​the job opportunities that regional aviation has and will have.

And if there is a leading actor in this area, that is the manufacturer ATR. It has become the preferred choice of regional airlines and continues to grow strongly in emerging markets (for example, Asia), being the most reliable and efficient solution for transporting passengers and cargo.

Well, ATR estimates that regional traffic will increase around 4.5% per year, with the expectation that by 2037 30% of this traffic will take place on routes that do not exist today.

Similarly, the company estimates a demand for 3000 new aircraft for the next 20 years.
