Might get on? Interview, sim eval? Hopeful?

Age isn't really a big consideration here anyways. Once you're in, it's all seniority based so you just wait until your number comes up.

I was youngest on my course at 26. Ive seen new hires in their late 40's this year. With an 18-24 month upgrade at the moment people into their 40's can still enjoy a great career.

Jazz has a huge spread of age for new hires. From 22-23 to mid late 40's. Age really means nothing, however you can use it to your advantage in your interview.

In twenty years time when your kids ask how you got into flying you want to be able to say "work and determination" not "I just kept taking money from your grandparents for type ratings until someone was stupid enough to give me a job"

Some replies just don't change on this site. I guess we should expect dumb comments from some.

Yes we have hired pilots in their 50s before. I don't think it's an issue at all.
