According to a poll conducted by UK-based GOOSE Recruitment and industry publication FlightGlobal, more than 50 percent of the world's airline pilots are no longer flying. This is due to the sharp decline in demand and travel curbs in different parts of the world in view of the coronavirus pandemic. As per the poll, over 30% of the pilots were unemployed, 17% furloughed and 10% in non-flying roles.
