Is there any height requirement for Men in aviation? Is it too late for me to begin a new career in Aviation after having my career in 24 years of trucking transportation? Can I get any referrals if I can’t make school in Florida in Virginia?
In civil aviation there is not a minimum height requirement to become a pilot; however, some small aircraft cannot accommodate an extremely tall individual. To be sure of a specific airline’s requirements, we encourage you to contact them directly.
At 24, you still meet our age criteria. 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.
