Age Limit


Recommended Posts

While doing some more research on pursuing my dream of becoming a helicopter pilot, I have another question for the people in the know on this board. Is there an age limit regarding flying, all I can find is that you must be 17, however I'm talking about an age cut off to where you can pilot a helicopter. Is it feasible that when you are in your 60's that you can still be employed and flying?

I once worked with a pilot slinging cranberries in MA who was 75 years old…..


No regulatory age requirement other than the minimum age for certification. Otherwise, it’s based upon the ability to maintain ones level of medical certificate. So yes, you can work well into, and possibly beyond, your 60's......
