257 Max talks with Dr. Victor Vogel about challenges pilots face as they get older. These include deteriorating vision and hearing, memory loss and declining strength, endurance, and proficiency. But there are strategies pilots can use to counter declining proficiency. These include frequent flying, training, and scaling back on more challenging flight conditions.
