I was 38 when I got hired into the 737. Does that help?

Just a guess but the youngest guy currently at DAL will be in his 40s when he gets to left seat.

back to your original question..it is bull...he would have had to get hired at about age 14...there is a UPS guy who was hired in his low 20s and was a captain because the airline was new and he was one of the first pilots for them...but this delta thing is hogwash...now where's my diaper?????????

There are a whole group of pilots hired at Fedex in their 20's. Most of them will upgrade to captain at 32 on the 727. Widebody 2 to 3 years later.

Default Barry Seal or Barry Schiff?

Years ago, a TWA pilot told me that his new-hire classmate, Barry Seal, became the youngest captain on the 707 and the 747. He said that the general opinion of Seal was that he would end up either as president of the company or in jail. Seal later got involved with drug smugglers, testified against them as part of a plea bargain, and was fatally shot in revenge.

On the other hand, I heard somewhere that the retired pilot/author Barry Schiff was the youngest 707 captain. Possible name confusion. Any ex-TWA guys have the answer?

Thank you for your reply, everyone. So I did some search as well and got the following:

Ed Maxwell: In May 1990 he became a 747 captain with UPS at 25

James T.Boyish: at age 19, became B777 captain, Neverland Airlines
(Sure it is not in US as you have to be 23 to hold an ATP, right?)

Anyway, we concluded that someone is BSing about being CA at DAL at 24.

Thanks again!
