You’re too young to understand growing old and its effects on your health? I’ve known several airline pilots in their 40s trying to find a new career due to loss of medical. One in my town died of heart disease IN HIS HOTEL ROOM! I went to a USC safety course with a former major carrier pilot who lost his medical permanently and was hoping the course might get him an offer inside the company.

As the old pilots said when I was young, “every passed medical means you can work for six more months”. And that’s true.
