This paper explains that, in response to airline industry requirements, flight training programs should use the modular approach to training, rather than the integrated approach. The modular approach results in longer flying hours, more knowledge of the management issues related to commercial aviation, and experience in multi-engine aircraft flying and multi-crew simulation exercises. The author points out that the main objective of the flight training industry, very hard hit following 9/11, was to prevent shutdown of the many training schools, which form the backbone of the human resources requirement of the aviation industry. The paper relates that one of the major challenges, from a business viewpoint, is the loss of glitz and glamour that commercial airline pilots once enjoyed because of increased security concerns, greater risks in flying, high cost of training, and the uncertain career prospects due to the frequent shakeouts in the airline industry.
