Peter Weber Jr., the World's Oldest Living Active Aircraft Pilot

A new world record was created last on March 30 when a 95-year-old pilot took to the skies and in the process, became the oldest living pilot who still flies a plane. Meet Peter Weber Jr. – the nonagenarian who flew a small plane for about 20 minutes a few days ago and set the new record. During the event that was attended by several media outlets, Peter made three loops around a small airfield – much to the delight of his friends and family. According to the Sacramento Bee, the the flight Peter Weber Jr. made on Monday qualifies him to be the world’s oldest active pilot.

Weber, who began military service as a private, retired from the Air Force in 1970 as a lieutenant colonel. Since then he has flown for fun. “I like to fly,” he said. “I fly at least twice a month. I like to observe and take anybody up for a ride who wants to go.”

He said that his good health, mental acuity and long life can be traced in part to his diet. “My wife, Ruth, is a good cook,” he said. “We’ve been married 72 years. I was a cadet in primary flight training when we got married.”
