Northwestern University Transportation Center presents:

“The Pilot of the Future”

Geoff Murray - Partner, Oliver Wyman




Tremendous change is on the horizon for the commercial aviation pilot workforce. Baby boomer retirements, regulatory changes, and increasing demand growth will create a need for hundreds of thousands of new pilots globally over the next 20 years. With demand set to outstrip supply and massive generational change on the horizon, airlines will be challenged to build stronger connections to and engagement with their pilot workforces, both to capture and retain the best pilots and ensure differentiated performance and service.

In this session, Geoff Murray will highlight our latest research and cover wide ranging themes that will impact the pilot of the future, such as disruptors, working environment, culture and organization, standards and training, and flight operations.

Our perspectives are informed by years of experience working with Flight Operations departments around the world, one on-one interviews with selected executives, and a survey of senior management at international airlines, cargo operators, original equipment manufacturers, and training companies.

Geoff Murray leads Oliver Wyman’s global aerospace sector team and has more than 18 year of consulting experience in the transportation industry. He works with OEMs, suppliers, and investors advising on strategic issues including aftermarket growth, organizational design, and mergers and acquisitions.

Geoff also holds an airline transport pilot certificate and began his aerospace career as an original member of the McDonnell Douglas T-45A Goshawk experimental flight test team.

He is based in Chicago, holds a doctorate in engineering from Northwestern University, and is the chair of the President’s Advisory Board at his undergraduate alma mater, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
