Abstract : During 1965 there were 450,494 certificated general aviation pilots in the United States, of which 9,826 were over sixty years old. Within this group there were 108 accidents, 17 of which were fatal. Statistical analysis (chi square) revealed that these older pilots were essentially as safe as their younger colleagues. Analyses of accidents by airman certificate and age groups are given. (Author)
