Commercial Pilot/Co-Pilot CV Example

Steering a commercial aircraft remains in the domain of the cockpit crew consisting of the Pilot and co-Pilot tasked with navigating a multi-engine aircraft to a safe take-off, cruise and landing on a regularly scheduled or chartered service, this can be for either a passenger or freighter aircrafts. The cockpit crew used to include systems engineers but modern aircrafts have rendered this redundant due to fully automated systems on board. The steerage will require certification for specific aircraft types. The distinction between the Pilot and Co-Pilot is a matter of certification and seniority in the type of aircraft piloted.
