7/17/1979--Introduced. Amends the Federal Aviation Act of 1958 to stipulate that no individual may serve as a commercial airline pilot, flight engineer, or flight navigator if such individual is 60 years of age or older. Requires the Director of the National Institutes of Health, in consultation with the Secretary of Transportation and the Secretary of Labor, to conduct a study to determine whether such age restriction is warranted and whether the rules governing first- and second-class medical examinations for such individuals are adequate. Requires such report to be submitted to Congress within one year.
