Probably is. Truth is though, if everyone on this site read this, it would probably cut in half the forum that are started. Was interesting reading to me, even though im already in.

How are there controllers over the age of 62? Isn't max age with a waiver 61?

(REF: FAA EMP-1.20)

This thread reminds me of Big Daddy.

But he's got a 10 year plan!

What, don't die?

Not if they worked before they started with the mandatory retirement. There's a guy training at my facility who is close to 65. He was an old PATCO guy and just got re-hired about 3 years ago. When he worked there was no such thing as mandatory retirement so he can work for as long as he can perform the duties.

Thats awesome. I know I would do that if there was no mando retirement.

Puts a whole new meaning to 'grandfathered in' though :poke:

I remember the trainers talking about it when I had my internship there. He had just been hired at the time and had not yet reported to the facility. It was quite the conversation topic at the time.
