I am 48 years old with a bachelor degree in business. I also have a Commercial pilot license with mult-engine and instrument rating. I flew only as a hobby. I was looking at the maritime college programs for third mate license. This would be a brand new career for me. Will anyone even consider me hiring me at my age (non-military)? I am in good health. Do any of the employers have mandatory retirement, or can I work as many years as I want?
Whats kind of vessels might I work on with this license?
