What is the right job title for a pilot?
In English the term "pilot" can be misunderstood, because a "pilot" could also be the captain of an airplane. The terms "Marine Pilot" or "Maritime Pilot" describe more precisely that the pilot of a ship and not of an aircraft is meant. If we only write "pilot" on our page, then we always mean the pilot of a vessel.
In the future we will be able to publish a list of the professional titles "Pilot" here, which show the different spellings and designations for "Pilot" - also in different countries and languages.
