Jack Pelton, chairman, president and CEO of Cessna, said the diminishing number of pilots concerns the manufacturer. "Fewer pilots equate to less business for all of us, and it threatens the strong, sustainable aviation system our nation counts on," Pelton said in a speech to the Aero Club of Washington, D.C. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the number of student pilots will fall to a 10-year low next year.
