Any such age limit increases * should* be phased in incrementally so as not to be too disruptive or provide a huge windfall to a small handful of people.

Too many folks getting their knickers in a twist for no reason. The sky is not falling on your career. Itís rather paranoid, for the Entitleds, to think that raising the retirement age is going to affect their progressions. What do you think the percentage of those over sixty continue to age 65? Think about the percentages of those who make it to 65 who want to continue beyond. Consider the number of those who donít make it through career day, or medical out. Iíd wage those number are great than the number who want to carry on beyond age 65.

Australia and New Zealand have no age limit.

I'm sure someone said this about raising past 60, guess what it wrecked alot of people.

At least icao is 65 so those staying can enjoy guppy life or Fifi.

As one of my friends at Quantas put it, the only way to move up the seniority list is for someone to die. Thatís partly because their taxes make it harder to get ahead, but also because a remarkable number of pilots donít know when to say when.
