ICAO have set pilot age limits for “international commercial air transport operations” as follows:
65 years old in multi-pilot operations
60 years old in single pilot operations
The US FAA and EASA apply the same rules. All ICAO states should apply the same rules.
1. Which countries have NOT applied these rules?
I’ve seen the same list in a few places of countries which have no age limit - Australia, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, New Zealand, Russia, New Zealand, Senegal, Ukraine.
And then some countries which have higher age limits - Japan, China.
Are there any more countries which should be added to either of these lists?
2. These rules are for commercial air transport operations. Does that include charter flights?
Also, are there any age limit rules for private flights?
3. Who actually sets the rules for pilot age limits?
The country that issues the pilots license? The country where the aircraft is registered? Or whatever the country is that the pilot happens to be flying in?
