Take Flight Tomorrow: Hundreds of Flights Cut at U.S. Airports As Pilot Shortage Worsens

86 communities have lost more than 10% of daily departures.

 Washington, DC, September 8, 2014 - American airports, both large and small, have suffered major cuts in service ranging from 10 percent to nearly 81 percent as airlines have been forced to cancel flights in part due to the growing pilot shortage. 

Take Flight Tomorrow - a coalition of stakeholders working together to repair the pilot supply pipeline and prevent additional losses to scheduled airline service - has released a list of 86 U.S. communities that have already lost 10 percent or more of their scheduled airline departures.* The list includes major international airports serving Cleveland (CLE), Memphis (MEM) and Louisville (SDF), as well as state capitals such as Tallahassee (TLH), Providence (PVD), Jackson (JAN), Harrisburg (MDT) and Cheyenne (CYS) and dozens of other airline-served airports across 33 states and two U.S. territories.
