CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The Wall Street Journal reports the nation's airlines are about to be hit by a serious pilot shortage.

Starting next summer, all newly hired commercial pilots must meet a higher flight hour requirement. It also comes at the same time thousands of senior pilots are expected to retired.

To make matters even worse, another set of new rules will require pilots to get more rest between flights.
