Maximum Age to get first job as FO

What is Maximum age to get the first job in commercial airline in USA?

Rohit,

The retirement age for all airline pilots in the US is 65. I’ve never seen a posted max age to get hired anywhere as that could be seen as discrimination. I have seen a Regional pilot hired at 60 and a few at Major’s hired in their early 50s but that’s been rare.

Hi Adam,

Thank you for information.

Do American Airlines hire pilot from India or Indian pilot student graduating from ATP or other flight training school in USA?

Thank You,

Rohit,

To fly for any airline in the US (or even work as a pilot in any capacity) you must be either a citizen or have permanent resident status.
