Senators propose raising U.S. commercial pilots' mandatory retirement age

A group of senators in Congress on Monday proposed legislation to raise the mandatory commercial pilot retirement age to 67 from 65, in a bid to address airline industry staffing issues.

Save on your hotel -

The legislation first proposed last year by Republican Lindsey Graham and other Republicans now includes Democrats Joe Manchin and Mark Kelly. The proposal, which would require pilots over age 65 to pass a rigorous medical screening every six months, follows complaints of pilot shortages by many regional airlines.
