Co-pilot Glacier (73°11′S 164°22′E / 73.183°S 164.367°E / -73.183; 164.367Coordinates: 73°11′S 164°22′E / 73.183°S 164.367°E / -73.183; 164.367) is a short, steep tributary glacier, flowing from the western and southern slopes of Mount Overlord to the upper part of Aviator Glacier in Victoria Land. It was named by the northern party of the New Zealand Geological Survey Antarctic Expedition, 1962–63, in recognition of services rendered by pilots of U.S. Navy Squadron VX-6, and in association with nearby Pilot Glacier.
