I would start by raising the mandatory retirement age from 55 or 60? to 65.
Dec 14, 2007 President Bush on Dec. 13 signed into law a new mandatory retirement age for pilots. Now commercial pilots can stay on the job until they're 65
The article states that the mandatory retirement age is 65.
I'm not so sure about that.My understanding is that piloting commercial aircraft is a stressful job.Stress + time zone changes (not an issue for *all* pilots,certainly) + age = potential heart attacks.
