Flying after 60


New Member
Hey!! I know there's always the debate of whether or not pilots should be able to fly after 60, but Johns Hopkins' Bloomberg School of Public Health did a 10 year long research on age and whether or not it affects pilots' performance in the cockpit. Check out the article, pretty interesting: Article: Hopkins Medicine
I wish that article gave a few more details. I like to see claims backed up! I could use some solid data on the experience factor. Of course it makes sense, as there is no substitute for experience in an airplane.

Maybe the age 60 rule will come up again next session, who knows?
