Hello, I’m not your typical career minded flight student. I’m recently retired from the Dept. of State. I am 57 yrs old, healthy and fit, and want to know if ATP makes sense to become a professional pilot in the shortest amount of time.
My goal is to fly with a regional or possibly a major airline. I am not looking for a long career as I’m financially independent and training costs are not an issue. I’m just looking to fly.
Is there a mandatory retirement age in my case?
Any alternative suggestions?
Any thoughts would be appreciated, Thanks
