United Airlines is doing this one for all you aviation enthusiasts who are in love with the "Queen of the Skies" (a.k.a. UA Flight 2704 will operate ONLY on Friday, July 28, on a Boeing 747-400 from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport (ORD) nonstop to San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The flight is scheduled to depart O'Hare at 6:30 p.m.and arrive in San Francisco at 8:51 p.m. local time.
Turns out the Chicago-based carrier via its ongoing "Eco-Skies" program is also getting actively involved in a new raptor protection project at Newark Liberty International Airport in conjunction with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and Audubon International. Newark Liberty is one of United's largest hubs. At its core, the protection project involves relocating birds such as the American kestrel and the owl to golf courses in proximity to Newark Liberty that have been certified for inclusion in the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program.
The aviation industry is facing a crucial need for trained workers and must come up with more than 2.1 million new employees in three vital job positions during the next 20 years if it wants to keep up with the tremendous growth expected in the industry worldwide, according to a report by The Boeing Co. This could lead to a massive problem for major airlines if they can’t keep up with the pace of growth. The pilot shortage already is having an impact on the industry, which expects roughly 18,000 pilots at major carriers in the U.S. to retire in the next three years.
