Article Corona causes financial impact on some Marine Pilots

by Frank Diegel, CEO Marine-Pilots.com - published

Fewer vessels in voyage mean less pilotage and this means less income for many Pilots. Not every Pilot is an employee and many pilots are self-employed and organised in a brotherhood per example. They are earning only money if they are piloting a vessel. No vessel – no money.

Video Safe at sea with satellites (AIS)

Found on YouTube. Created by "European Space Agency, ESA"

Opinion Positioning of vessel at berth by using bridge wing gyro repeater

by Capt. Girish Chandra - published
