Writers of English english tend to use "ageing" while those of American
english tend to use "aging".  Either is correct according to the Oxford
Dictionary.

I use "aging" because it's used five times more frequently in scientific
literature.  (Do a medline search using both and you'll see what I mean.)
Common usage is the mother of language.
