    From what I have heard, the term pilot- is not used as a title; but rather the pilots of the FDNY must hold a USCG pilots liscence for all waters of the New York Bay, for a vessel at least 500 tons displacement.

    Hope this helps.

    Unhappy

    I distinctly remember the comments made over the air, by one of the FDNY marine units as the events unfolded in lower Manhattan. One can only imagine the shock and horror....as they watched the second plane approach and slam into the building.

    It was precisely that moment that I knew this was not an accident....but an attack on America.
