First Officers, sometimes referred to as co-pilots, act as the second in command of the aircraft. Their main role is to support the Captain in any and all situations, be they normal or abnormal, and the First Officer role is crucial in the safe operation of the plane while it is in flight. In terms of day to day activities, there is little difference between those of the captain and the first officer, but the captain is at the top of the chain of command, responsible for aircraft, passengers and crew.
As such a responsible and technical position, it requires hundreds of hours of training, both practical and theoretical and is understandably strictly and tightly regulated. Many commercial pilots, first officers included, have previously flown in a military capacity. This was more true in the past however, with only fifty percent now coming from a military background: to become a commercial pilot you need to be certified by the relevant aviation authority, and clock up a certain number of hours in the air. It varies from one authority to another, but for example, the British Civil Aviaton Authority requires 1,500 hours of flight time of which at most 100 can be completed in a simulator.
You will also be required to complete EASA ATPL exams, on subjects ranging from principles of flight, air law and meteorology as well as a ATPL skills test, which is like a driving test for planes. Although this certification lasts forever, you can’t jump back into a plane after a five year absence. All first officers will need to have flown a certain number of hours within the last year, and if not can undergo an evaluation with an instructor and be signed off as qualified. Whilst it is true that a first officer must have 20/20 vision, this vision is allowed to be corrected, meaning a first officer’s glasses can be as thick as you like, as long as they correct their vision sufficiently.
Despite the reputation, first officer salaries are ususally lower than you might think. A newly qualified first officer working for a small operator is likely to earn around £20,000 and even those working for slightly larger companies are only likely to earn £23-25,000. With a little experience however, a first officer can earn anywhere from £35,000 to £50,000
