I recently met a student pilot in his 50s at the Sling Pilot Academy. I did a short video interview below. At first I thought he was just there to get a private pilot license. But he says he plans to go all the way to become a commercial pilot and work for the airlines. My initial reaction was no way! not at 50. But he's really doing it. So it begs the question; Are You Ever Too Old To Become A Pilot?
