Boeing looked to the future of aviation during the Farnborough Airshow outside London this week, forecasting that by 2031 the world will require 460,000 new commercial airline pilots and 601,000 new commercial airline maintenance technicians. The demand driving such growth has Boeing expanding its efforts to find and train talent for the future. Along those lines, the company and publisher Flightglobal named 2012 Engineering Students of the Year. Yayu Monica Hew of the University of Texas at Arlington received the undergraduate-level award and Jianying Tracy Ji, Ph.D. candidate at Washington State University, is the graduate-level winner. Hew is developing and testing new remote sensory monitors to detect strain on airplanes and other aircraft while Ji won for her research on advanced rechargeable lithium batteries.
