Default Average Age of DCS Players?

Myself and a Co-worker we're talking about the age of pc game players. I told him that I haven't seen or heard of youngsters playing DCS. What is the average age?

I got onto DCS when I was thirteen. Fifteen now. I've encountered a couple other youths such as myself. Not many though. Most of the folks I meet on DCS are people with their own jobs and families.
