I know the current minimum age for recieving the ticket is 23, but with the opprotunity to take the classes before 23 and then just wait to get the card, is there a point in the minimum age? I mean you have the R-ATP that you can get 141 at 1000 hours or military at 750, and be below 23. You are restricted from PIC until ATP mins are met, but the dispatch mins are 200 hours in a classroom and 200 hours in a classroom is 200 hours in a classroom. Not prolonged experience gaining hours of flying. Is there an argument to lower the minimum age to something like 20 or 21?
