A pilot's profile contains all the information about them. It is also where CEOs of airlines can assign pilots their VA-ID, type ratings, rank, ground the pilot, kick(or fire) the pilot and tip the pilot.

Pilot Features

The following features are available to the pilot who "owns" the profile any time that they view it while logged in.

By clicking on the buy ticket link, any pilot can buy a ticket to an airport at which they are not currently located at. This will help the pilot reach their aircraft in order to fly them.

Delete Account

By clicking this option, you are prompted with a question as to whether or not you would like to delete your account. Once someone has clicked yes, it is unreversable and will be a permanent deletion from the FSAirlines system.

CEO Features

The following features can only be accessed by CEOs or other ranks in your own VA that have been given this privelage.

Training Typerating

A training typerating allows you to fly training flights with the aircraft you have the rating for but you do not earn any profit from those flights.

Full Typerating

Once a full typerating is given to a user, they may fly actual flights with the aircraft specified by the rating and they will earn profit from these flights.
