Airlines Globally Push for Lone Pilots to Cut Costs, Ease Labour Shortages

Airlines and regulators in over 40 countries including Germany, the UK and New Zealand have asked the United Nations body that sets aviation standards to help make single-pilot flights a safe reality by as early as 2027.

The group is pushing to have just one pilot in the cockpit of passenger jets instead of two, in an attempt to ease pressure from crew shortages and lower operating costs which could be passed down to passengers, as Secret Flying reports.

However, groups including pilot unions and associations are expressing concerns about safety issues with only a single pilot on board.
