this topic is like politics both sides opinions will never change but youngsters who spout crap about medicals and safety, when thier real reason is they just want quicker promotion, are a disgrace to "flying" there was a day when ALL pilots were a "band of brothers" and willing to go to any lenghts to help each other
If you're residence is FL as is mine, you must be in complete denial as to the effects of aging that we witness daily with the aging population of our state.
About every 3 weeks or so there is a picture in the newspaper of a car in a swimming pool or inside a 7/11 store usually driven by a senior citizen who just got the pedals wrong that day. None seem to be the result of sudden incapacitation. I bet if you asked each one of these drivers a few minutes before their mishaps if they have any problems with age and driving, they'd probably tell you to #$% off, and that they are ok to drive.
Personally, the effects of fatigue on senior pilots is a greater threat than sudden incapacitation.
