Is there any weight restriction to a pilot over the age of 60 flying in the USA?
Could a 60 year old pilot fly a B747 in a private non-public transport role eg a Ferry Flight, Air test etc?

Thanks

I guess as long as he is under 200lbs he should be OK :p

CFR14...Part 121 sched services(the only reference to over 60 I can find)sats:121.383(c)'no certificate holder may use the services of any person as a pilot on operations under this part(121)if that personhas reached his 60th birthday..no person may serve as a pilot on an AIRPLANE engaged in operations under this part if that person has reached his 60th birthday
PART 121:cert' and ops:domestic,Flag,and supplemental carriers and Commercial large aircraft.......
Hope this helps..
Cheers:ok:

You just have to correct the dry operating weight. Sure.

OXFORD1G,

To answer your question directly: yes, he could. In fact, I met a pilot well over 60 flying a 747 for a private concern.
