|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Aircrew article.|

Considering that article was started on 18 November 2004 it needs a huge amount of work. Not only does it have no sources, but it is badly written, sounds like a personal essay and presents opinions that do not conform to any known references. For instance in the Canadian military pilots, navigators and flight engineers are classified as "aircrew" (i.e. essential to the operation of the aircraft) but flight attendants are "flight crew". In Canadian civil aviation there is no such thing as "aircrew" (ref CARs definitions and Aeronautics Act definitions). I have no idea if any country defines anyone as "aircrew" and this article doesn't clear that up. There is also the problem that the article title "aircrew member" is poor grammar and should be simply "aircrew". Incidentally Aircrew redirects to Aircrew member.
- Concur. We might also want to move it to Aircrew as the mostly likely search term. - BillCJ (talk) 17:25, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
It looks like that is everyone who has worked on this article since April. Let's give it a bit of time for anyone else to chime in and then, if there are no objections, proceed on this consensus. - Ahunt (talk) 18:56, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
- I have made the changes discussed and agreed upon above. Because both pages (aircrew and aircrew member) already existed I have copied the talk page contents here for continuity. If anyone thinks that isn't the best way to do it, please feel free to change it!
- Please do add more aircrew trade links to the article, if you can think of any. - Ahunt (talk) 12:11, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
