Student pilot numbers shrinking; flight schools trying to buck trend

According to a 20-year forecast issued this year by the FAA, the number of student pilots is expected to dwindle to as few as 69,050 in 2011, down from 2010’s estimate of 72,280 student pilots. To put that number in perspective, there were 93,064 student pilots in 2000. From 2000 to 2009, the number of people learning to fly shrunk by about 3 percent.
