Based on any historical records, who has been the oldest pilot ever? "Pilot", I mean, somebody who managed to take off, return to the airport and land without help. That much is probably not possible without training; would still be interesting to know if this pilot had a valid or maybe expired license.
Cole Kugel, 105
Born March 14, 1902, Cole Kugel, a resident of Longmont, Colorado, USA is the oldest qualified pilot. He was born one year before the legendary Wright Brothers took to the skies, and has been flying ever since. Kugel earned his pilot's license in 1945 and flew in 2007 for the last time, aged 105, piloting in the company of local veterinarian Lynn Ferguson in his beloved 1976 Cessna 182.
