Age 67 is not stalling the entire FAA re-authorization. That's going to happen on or around 1 Oct, with or without age 67... as of today it's in the HR.

When age 67 was a stand-alone proposal with a minuscule chance of advancing as such, it could and did get shelved indefinitely. That cannot happen with a major re-authorization... unless they want to shut down the FAA and ATC.

Sounds like they're actually arguing over pilot certification standards at the entry level, not the age 67 part specifically.

Iím glad the rule didnít change before I hit 65. I would have been tempted to say around another couple years, just for the money. Looking back now, after being retired for over a year; Iím glad I left when I did and still have decent health. (Itís actually much better now, since retiring).

I miss the machine and the comraderie of my crews, and of course the paycheck. I donít miss all the ancillary BS that has accumulated over the years, esp w/UA.

I have plenty of money and recently realized how much I like living on MY schedule, with NO ONE to tell me when to get up, eat, etc. Maybe Iím spoiled. Spent over 40 years earning a living in an airplane., and retired pretty senior.

Retirement is being wasted on the elderly. Time to move onto motorcycle racing.

There are so many crises screamed from the rooftop, daily. Typically they never come to pass, or are very watered down.

With age, comes wisdom (for some). Know what to ignore and what deserves attention.
