Purdue University National Aviation Symposium – Emerging Critical Shortages of Pilots and Maintenance Technicians

The Purdue University School of Aviation and Transportation Technology is convening a new, bi-annual National Symposium to address the rapidly re-approaching shortage of pilots and aircraft maintenance technicians. Unless these shortages are addressed, the aviation industry will suffer a human resource crisis well into the future.

Our symposium will be held at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, from April 6 through April 8, 2022. Representatives from all the stakeholders in the national aviation community will be invited to attend. These stakeholders include airlines, manufacturers, associations, labor unions, government agencies, academic institutions and the media.
