Kenya could run out of pilots if not enough young people train for the job, the president and founder of Young Aviators Club of Africa is quoted the the Star newspaper as saying.
Mercy Makau said many pilots are now in their 40s and once they reach 65, they will no longer be allowed to fly.
Potential young pilots are put off by the cost of training as a pilot, the newspaper adds..
It costs $58,000 (£47,000) to obtain both licences needed to fly a commercial aircraft, it reports.
Kenya is also losing out on pilots to international carriers which pay more. In April, 130 pilots moved to airlines in the Middle East for better pay, the East African newspaper reported.
There were only 430 pilots in the country, the newspaper added.
