I am a 41 year old truck driver. I’ve always wanted to learn how to fly. Am I to old to consider learning and pursuing a career?


Welcome to the forum. This is a FAQ that gets asked a lot, I recommend browsing through the forum and the FAQ section.


At 39, did you have prior experience in aviation? Also, does being an older “rookie” pilot make it harder to land a job with a airline?


This question gets asked daily. No you’re not too old and there is no stigma. I’ve seen pilots getting hired in their early 60s.

Please reference any of the literally hundreds of threads we have on the subject for more details.
