Lobbying 5

​I am lobbying against the FAA Retirement Age For Commercial Pilots. As of right now there are no groups or organizations who are showing opposition to this law, mainly because the cutoff age was raised from 60 to 65 in 2007. 

Certain organizations actually argued against the FAA changing the age from 60 to 65 because they felt that some pilots weren't going to be physically able to fly after the age of 60. 

I began to research more organizations run by airline pilots and I was able to find an organization called ALPA (Air Line Pilots Association). This organization has dealt with the FAA before and was also one of the reasons that the FAA retirement age was changed, so if I were to continue on with trying to succeed in this lobbying project, my best bet would be to contact ALPA and see what they could do to help.
