The Aging Pilot

The studies are in … if you’re an older pilot you need to... fly more!

Despite what many may think, the key to staying safe as an aging pilot is to get out and fly as often as you can! It’s an undeniable fact that as we age, our bodies change. As a pilot this has significant implications on a hobby that we love. The good news is that by continuing to fly regularly, or even more often will help to maintain our stick and rudder skills, but more importantly it helps to keep our brain alert to the many dynamics of aviation.
