They shoot for about 13 pilots per aircraft, give or take. There are about 100 planes on firm order in each fleet. So that's at least 2500 more pilots in the next six years or so.

That's pretty amazing, but keep cool. A lot of things can happen between now and then. Who could have predicted the state of the industry now in 1999?
