Chief Pilot Wings

Pilots who successfully complete their Chief Pilot (CP) rating will concurrently hold the title of "Chief Pilot, " in addition to their normal rank, and will be recognized as the airline expert for any questions pertaining to this aircraft. In order to earn the CP rating, pilots must:
  • 1. Have logged 50 hours of sim time in their chosen aircraft as attested to by their PIREP Records.
  • 2. Submit an essay detailing the history and operational specifications of the aircraft type including a bibliography. (See Chief Pilots essays)
  • 3. Pass an aviation general knowledge examination (multiple choice questions).
  • 4. There will be only one chief pilot in the company for each type of aircraft.

Once the candidate passes the knowledge exam he/she will be awarded the designation of Chief Pilot.

This designation will be reflected on the pilot roster.
