The U.S. Pilot Shortage Is More Serious Than We Thought – Airlines are racing to hire and train new pilots as the U.S. is facing a pilot shortage.

The shortage is much more serious than previously thought. Major U.S. airlines are scrambling to hire more than 12-thousand pilots just this year, double the previous record for hiring in a single year.

The shortage comes as hiring was temporarily stopped during the COVID-19 pandemic and airlines handed out early retirement to pilots to cut back on costs. Not only that, but training was slowed considerably.

Reports say Senator Lindsey Graham is considering proposing legislation to raise the mandatory retirement age for pilots from 65 to 67. United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby says it’ll take about five years for pilot levels to return to normal.

Spwitter’s legal team has accused Elon Musk of violating a nondisclosure agreement regarding the social media company’s number of bot accounts, the Tesla CEO said in a tweet Saturday. On Friday, Musk tweeted that his $44-billion deal to take Twitter private was “temporarily on hold” while he awaited data on the proportion of its fake accounts. Twitter accused Musk of breaching an agreement after Musk tweeted that the sample size for the social media platform’s checks on automated users was 100, “because that is what Twitter uses to calculate <5% fake/spam/duplicate,” Musk said. He later said that “There is some chance it might be over 90% of daily active users.”
