age is not wavierable.Here is a question: Being that I will be 31 at the end of my (6 yr) USAF enlistment (next year); what FCT company would be the best for "steady" employment? I am planning on settling down, getting married to my sweet gal, and possibly starting a family. The main reason I'm planning on getting out is that I don't want to deal with all the BS associated with Military life and moving all the time. From what I understand, I will be too old for the FAA (have heard about some "wavered to 36" thingie - ??).
That's because for a limited time after the 81 strike The FAA waived the age requirement if you had certain qualifications.Maybe things have changed, but I was 32 1/2 when I was hired in 1987. They supposedly had the 31 limit then too.
Retired in 2008.
