Best Training for Pilots?

Several aviation industry entities predict a growing demand for pilots over the next couple decades. Boeing forecasts a need for 460,000 new commercial pilots by 2013. This raises the question about recruitment, training and retention.

Baltic Aviation Academy just launched a contest for ideas on pilot training infrastructure and strategy--particularly, do airlines think in-house type rating and external training is better.

Entries are due THIS Friday, Aug. 3. Send your opinions and suggestions to ideas@balticaa.com

What do you think? With more and more on-demand and remote training options, what's the best way to train? Pilots, what do you prefer?
