Hi. The idea has been about to see how many; of you are "kids" or maybe below 20. the idea is to see what percentage of you are juniors.

Take the number 20, multiply it times 2 then add 3, that will give you my age.

age is nothing to be afraid of. the best flyers at my field are retired, as are the nicest ones. they are the ones who can build anything. they are the ones who can design and build electrical circuts. as a matter of fact, age is like a badge. the older you are, the more you know, the more experianced you are. basically the point of my message is vote honestly.

29 here, Feel like im 50, act like I'm 15. So that said lets average it out and call it 31.

For you youngsters by average I mean add up all the numbers and divide it by 3. LOL (just joking guys)

By the way space. Good idea, it is intresting to see the age variation between pilots. Just goes to show how amazing this hobby is that it brings together every generation. Damn now I sound like I am 50 also. LOL

The more votes i get the more accurate the results will be. I know it is a bit of a favor to ask, but could some of you maybe notify somebody else of this post? i would like to get as many in as i can.

spaceclam, the ezone is down this moment (no telling when it'll be up & running again) but I started an age poll over there quite a while ago, and with much more specific categories...I did 0-15, 16-30, 31-45, you get the point. I think it is a bazillion times more intersting, becuase you get a nice curve on the plot... I believe it was fairly bell shaped, and the max. point was around, if I remember right, 30-40.

If you do a search for "age poll" you will definately, I am sure, find that you are not the first. There are three major questions that get polled most often, and by far...E power/IC? Age? # 'o planes...I did all three before I found out I wasn't the first...all were on ezone.

I wasn't particularly interrested in drawing a graph, i just wanted to know the RATIO between juniors and those over 20 (seniors would be the wrong word). i ask mainly because ther are only about 5 regulars at our field.
