Default Age 62..just wondering?

I'm approaching the age of 62 and looking to retire from my lifelong health care position. I will have plenty of time on my hands and looking for some part time work. I have 4500TT, 500 turbine and 2000 mel. I have my ATP along with CFI, CFII and MEI. I understand that most companies are looking for full time pilots because the training is very expensive. I can always flight instruct but would enjoy working as a pilot or SIC better. Just wondering if there are positions like this in the aviation field. Going to retire in the Atlanta area

Since the regionals and majors are sucking up entry level and experienced pilots, I would expect you could find a 91/135 job with no trouble. Many of those are inherently part time.

Imagine Air is in the Atlanta area.. they would be a good if you wanted to fly a Cirrus Sr22 4 on 3 off or Flex option.

Default Don’t sell yourself short at 62

Regionals (almost all of them) will certainly take you at your age, probably even get a year or so of PIC before you hit 65!
