  • pilots uniform bars

    why is it that american pilots seem to have silver bars on their jacket sleeves whereas other countrys choose gold like the navy? incidently i think the aer lingus pilots have the best uniforms with the gold shamrock on their caps but i was just wondering about the colour scheme in general?

    Hi George,
    There is no legislation that dictates a pilot's uniform and hence each company can specify it's own. Regarding the colour (navy/silver) that is also up to the company involved.

    1 stripe....normally not used / trainee
    2 stripes....Flight engineer / second officer
    3 stripes....First officer
    4 stripes.....Captain
