    Allo, hopefully this is not a controversial topic, and despite my new found knowledge that profanity is a sign of Intelligence I shall refrain from colorful language (is it OK to say colorful?).  As you can probably tell from my Dad Joke level of humor I am getting a bit older and am curious to hear who is the oldest active pilot in the CSS or from other aging pilots and about how old they are and what age they(you) think they will be able to continue flying until.  All input is nice but mainly interested in hearing about older pilots that are still flying, full on (aggressively?) and still do XC and not so much about ones that only fly mellow days or come out for a “sledder”, not that there is anything wrong with that.  See you in the air, Alan

    My vote is for Susumu – if he’s not the oldest, he’s definitely the coolest. My guess is that he’ll be flying until he’s 100.  🙂

    Yeah, Susumu is definitely our oldest, and still flying for hours at a time! He’ll top-land Marshall to take a break once in a while, but then relaunches right back up there and is one of the last to land.
