HOT OFF THE PRESS - EASA Single Pilot CAT Age increase to 65...

Just got this through from the EHA. Good news for those of us that love work so much!AGE 60 limitation in single-pilot commercial air transport operations
After the publication of the EASA review of the evidence concerning the risk of sudden incapacitation of a pilot conducting single-pilot CAT, the EASA Medical Expert Group (MEG) met and it was decided to go ahead with the increase in age limit to 65. The Agency will try to find a suitable rule making task to use as an avenue to instigate this change and deeper analysis of impact on safety, economic, society and environmental will commence in November 2019. It should be noted that not all members of the MEG were supportive and that ICAO wants to see more evidence. There will be no increase in the age 65 limit for multi-pilot CAT at present. The EASA Rotorcraft Committee (R.COM) will be fully engaged with the rulemaking process and we encourage operators to test the feasibility of an Exemption with their NAA, as the EASA legislation will take around 6 years to enact.

A classic political decision; shift it to the right so any fallout will only affect our successors. Very well done EASA. Vanilla rules keep everyone happy.

But only by the big HEMS companies and only based on additional requirements (medical and psychological risk assessment) or did that change?

AFAIK additional requirements will be implemented in the upcoming EASA regulations also and at even younger age than the current 60+
