Flight Control Policies, Procedures and Information

  • Bridge - The primary responsibilities of the flight control officer are course plotting, position verification and supervision of manual and automatic flight operations. It may also be necessary to slave other consoles and assume control of other systems as requested by the Command Staff.
  • Bridge Liaison to Engineering - The flight control officer is the primary bridge liaison to engineering regarding the status of systems pertaining to the engines of the starship. They monitor and report to engineering on engine problems that are registering on their console and with the navigational deflector.
  • Shuttle or Flight Bay - This area can be named either according to ship class. The flight control officers should be well aware of all shuttles assigned to their ship and what their capabilities are. The Flight Control Staff is also responsible for the overseeing and training of all Shuttle Pilots.
  • Flight Certification - The FCO is to oversee any member of the crew wishing to be certified in piloting the shuttles. This also holds true for any member of the ships crew that wishes to retain their flight certification. They will be required to go through the same rigorous tests that the shuttle pilots go through to retain their certification every six months.
