Abstract : A study is conducted to determine the operational profile and mission of the certificated non-instrument rated commercial pilot. Based on the results of a nationwide, statistically reliable survey, pilots are divided into two major operational flight profiles: the medium operation and the complex operation, and one minor profile: the military operation. Profiles are defined on a functional basis. The aeronautical skills and knowledge necessary for the safe operation of the missions of each group are identified. Training and testing to a level of operational competence is suggested with separate programs for the medium and complex profiles.
