HC Deb 03 August 1971 vol 822 c274W
53. Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what medical tests have been conducted on the speed of the reflexes of the men aged over 60 years in relation to their ability to fly supersonic aircraft.

Mr. David Price

There have been no special tests conducted on the reaction times of individuals in relation to flying supersonic aircraft. But Concorde is specifically designed to require no special pilot qualifications beyond those required for the attainment of an Airline Transport Pilot's licence.
