    Is there a age limit and what if you had a drug felony in2007

    #48152

    An individual must be 16 years old to solo an aircraft, 17 years old to obtain a Private Pilot Certificate, 18 years old to obtain a Commercial Pilot Certificate and 23 years old to obtain an Airline Transport Certificate. FAR Part 121 (major airline regulations) require all pilots to retire at the age of 65.

    Felony convictions can prevent you from becoming a pilot and/or remaining a pilot once you’ve completed training. The FAA has even refused to issue medical certificates for student pilots because of felony drug convictions. Substance abuse and being branded a security threat are common reasons for FAA denial https://epicflightacademy.com/flight-school-faq/. Although felons are not strictly barred from becoming pilots, the FAA has leeway in denying licensing. Good moral character is an expected character trait of pilots. If you are unsure about your felony conviction, contact the FAA. https://www.faa.gov/
