Default Hoop Dance

Yes, and we are about at the age at which the Delta Queen Company used to hire most of its pilots. Given the infinite number of hoops, how many of those gentlemen could even get a renewal today, much less be allowed to stand a watch? Back when, some of them must have been cut some slack just to get a radar endorsement. And they were considered the best of the best because of their experience. I know first hand that nowadays age and experience doesn't mean ----. You are doing what they want you to do, walking away. BTW, my last renewal had some sort of health waiver on it. I have no idea what that was about and didn't try to find out, but I'm as healthy as a horse. Ageism?
