Is their a minimum qualifications for a ATP written licence and is it true you have to be 21?
[/ QUOTE ] To answer your question more specifically... There is no such thing as an "ATP written license", the written allows you to take the practical... I betting you knew that and just misworded it.
Also, there's no "official" rule that says you have to be 21 to take the test... however, the test is only good for two years and you can't take the practical until you are 23... so that's basically a backdoor way of saying you have to be 21 to take the test.
61.35 (a)(2)(iii) Date of birth, which shows the applicant meets or will meet the age requirements of this part for the certificate sought before the expiration date of the airman knowledge test report.
So yes, you must be 21 in order to take the ATP written.
