Do you how old is the youngest flight captain in your country?
Polish Airlines LOT`s youngest captain is 27 and flies ATR72.

I have heard of a 34-year old BA-744 Capt. He was upgraded to wide-body fairly rapidly, owing to previous experience as a pilot on the RAF Tornado.

My tutor told me one of his former students went directly from his aeronautical engineering course to become the youngest pilot BA ever employed. I don't know the details, though.

I was 32 when I checked out as a B757/767 Capt. We have a Capt who was 26 when he checked out as 747 Capt. I believe he was a DC8 Capt at 25. He's now about number 8 on our seniority list. Right place at the right time!
