Perhaps we do not fly the ROV's but we do pilot them and pilots fly so therefore we are pilots and that is at least a impressess the ladies.

I've heard that some harbour pilots have flown ships right to the bottom of the oggin. Sounds like they worked on all 3 planes to achieve that, so yes, I'll allow their pilot status.
