Zone(s): Japan ¦ Sector(s): Employment (Pilots)
There have been no major operational problems reported in relation to pilot age since these two changes. This has prompted the government to review the age limit again, ahead of other countries doing so. Plans under discussion also include a relaxation of the limit on flying hours and the use of non-Japanese pilots. These plans will be presented to a meeting of experts that will meet Friday.
