Ask a Pilot
Question: How old is too old to begin flying lessons?
Answer: Say “student pilot,” and most people think of a youngster chasing a dream. In reality, today’s fledgling is likely a middle-aged adult. The average student pilot today is in his or her 30s, and the typical average active pilot is a decade older. In addition, more than 25 percent of all U.S. pilots with current medical certificates are in their 50s. Some pilots learn to fly after they retire.
