Age 60 Report Posted on FAA Web Site

 - January 19, 2007, 10:30 AM

The final report of the FAA/industry rulemaking age-60 committee is now posted on the agency’s Web site. The committee was unable to reach consensus on whether to increase the mandatory retirement age of 60 for airline pilots. The report can be viewed and downloaded at www.faa.gov/media/Final_Age_60_ARC_Report_11_29_2006.pdf. FAA rulemaking is pending on whether the agency should adopt a new ICAO standard allowing one of two pilots on an airliner flight deck to be over age 60 but not over 65.
