Captain

Chattanooga, TN

  • A Captain's primary responsibility is to provide for the safe, comfortable, and economical operation of the assigned aircraft. While the captain may delegate some flight-related duties to other members of the flight crew, the captain retains full responsibility for the aircraft and the overall performance of the crew. When assigned as Pilot-in-Command (PIC) for a trip, a Captain assumes command responsibility for the aircraft and crew, and is operationally responsible to the Director of Flight Operations & Chief Pilot. When assigned as First Officer, a Captain is operationally responsible to the designated PIC for that trip. These relationships remain in effect, regardless of which pilot is flying the aircraft or which pilot seat is occupied. At all other times, a Captain reports to and is administratively responsible to the Director of Flight Operations & Chief Pilot. The duties of a Captain include, but are not limited to the following:Job Description:Job Duties & Responsibilities
