Over 60 flying in France

I am sure this has been asked before. Is there a reference in law (British or other) that says I can't overfly / land in France over 60 years of age?

Hi,

The CAA maintain a list of countries worldwide that either approve or refuse pilots over the age of sixty. It can be obtained from FCL at Gatwick or from the BALPA Technical Dept.

Alternatively, if you send me your e-mail address, I'll send you a copy.

Although the CAA does indeed maintain the list mentioned I understand the question to be 'what is the legal basis for a restriction imposed by a particular country ( in this case, France)' .Have a look at www.dgac.fr/index.htm. And enjoy! As an aside, San Marino has an altitude restriction for the over 60s.

The French case will, I believe, fall apart in 2006. Under new EU treaty law it will be illegal to discriminate employment on the grounds of age alone. If you can pass the medical you are fit. So if you have an EU licence, the French restrictions will be illegal. ICAO international treaty age limit of 65 would then apply.

France requires the pilots-in command of international air transport services to comply with the age limits set in Annex 1 (Personnel Licensing) to the Chicago Convention. As the age limits for co-pilots in Annex 1 are recommend practice rather than a standard France will allow co-pilots over 60 to operate in their airspace.

Annex 1 states:
2.1.10 Curtailment of privileges of pilots who have attained their 60th birthday

2.1.10.1 A Contracting State, having issued pilot licences, shall not permit the holders thereof to act as pilot-in-command of an aircraft engaged in scheduled international air services or non-scheduled international air transport operations for remuneration or hire if the licence holders have attained their 60th birthday.

2.1.10.2 Recommendation. A Contracting State, having issued pilot licences, should not permit the holders thereof to act as co-pilot of an aircraft engaged in scheduled international air services or non-scheduled international air transport operations for remuneration or hire if the licence holders have attained their 60th birthday.
