Insurance over 65 for Aircraft requiring a Type Rating
We are considering upgrading from a King Air 200 to a 350.  We always fly 2 pilots, both hold current type ratings and recurrent training for the 350 with experience in the 300 series aircraft.  Our insurance broker/agent is telling us that in the very near future insurance will not be available on just about any aircraft that requires a type rating if the pilot/pilots are over 65.  Has anyone else run into or heard of this type rating limitation and age restriction?

I have not heard this. I have a friend in his later 70's still flying as PIC on a jet. He has been worried the last two years about insurance renewing him but they have.
