Still working at 72, have you considered retirement?
No.

I have a strong disinclination to give up the lifestyle my salary allows, while at the same time I still enjoy messing about with aeroplanes. A couple of years ago the job sent me back out East to Singapore for a couple of months living in luxury (and working hard) and there's always the chance it might happen again. Avionics is in an interesting era at the moment, with all sorts of new stuff coming along and juicy STCs to get involved in - like drafting the paperwork for installing global hi-speed broadband on a B757. Then recently getting ADS-B Out upgraded to DO-260B on the cheap for the same customer. My other favourite customer is just about to embark on converting their B767 legacy EFIS to the in-vogue big flat screens. Maybe I can persuade them to stick in Head-up displays at the same time? I'm an avionics junky at heart.
