*** PREVIOUS RESULTS ***

Last week, AVweb asked its readers for opinions on the Age-60 Rule. A full half of those who responded were in lock-step: You said that safe piloting can only be determined on a case-by-case basis, and the Age-60 Rule does a disservice to pilots of all ages. The other half of you were divided on the effectiveness of the Age-60 Rule. 14% of you (72 voters) admitted that Age-60 is unfair but conceded that the Rule is a practical way to keep unsafe pilots on the ground. Another 14% said that a conservative age cap is the cost of safety. Plus, votes were nearly equal for those in favor of self-certification (no medicals) and those who believe medicals are a must. But only 4% (22 voters) said that older pilots represent a clear, immediate hazard.

*** THIS WEEK'S QUESTION ***

This week, AVweb would like to hear readers' opinions on the widening gap between technology and flight training. Can training keep pace with new technologies?
