AG Immigration has been featured on AeroTime!

How severe is the pilot shortage in the US? Or rather, does the crisis actually exist? Last Sunday (5/28/23), AeroTime – an online news platform specialized in aviation – published a story analyzing pilot shortage in the Unites States and how it has attracted foreigners.

Written by journalist Rytis Beresnevicius, the article features an interview with immigration attorney Ana Barbara Schaffert from AG Immigration.

AG Immigration received 771 and 863 pilot applications in 2021 and 2022, respectively. According to the FAA, by the end of 2022, there were 756,928 pilots in the US, with 166,738 holding an ATP”, reads an excerpt from the article.
