    50. Which is still younger than most of the airplanes I've flown.

    I may be getting older, but I refuse to grow up (I'd have to quit being a pilot!).

    The year in the photo, there was going to be a fly-in on (not for) my birthday. We were at the destination for the weekend but the weather that day was not that great. The only other folks who made it were two Marines from a nearby base. We had lunch and it was a very sobering thought the shirt was older than they.

    It funny now when I see an attractive woman around 50 and think only a few short years ago idda thought she was an old lady in that way... I bought my eldest son condoms for Christmas this year... I’m not old by any means but youth seems like it’s a goner! Lol

    Hahahaha Just today at lunch my nephew asked when I was getting a nice sports car. I said I have no desire. His mom says Vinny had an untraditional mid life crises buying a plane. Hahaha she got it, then my nephew said oh so you'd rather buy a bonanza! I'm teaching that kid the right way!

    You're only as old as who you feel. Which is why I only go after 25 year olds.

    Seems like POA tends toward the elderly & GA community, while reddit flying captures more folks in their 20's & 30's on the commercial track.
