Topic: Pilot licensing and certification

In the U.S., certificates are issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) — certificate is the proper term, although the word license (note the spelling) is commonly used, even by the FAA.
Sport pilot certificate (United States only), used for Light-sport Aircraft, a category that was designated in 2004.

 Sport Pilot FAA Medical Requirements / NPRM for light sport aircraft
If sport pilots choose to do so, however, they are violating not only the terms of their U.S. driver’s license or airman medical certificate but also the long-standing provisions of §61.53 that pertain to prohibition on operations during medical deficiency.
The determination as to whether a pilot has a medical condition that would make him or her unable to operate the aircraft in a safe manner is the sole responsibility of the pilot.
If the U.S. driver’s license of a pilot who does not possess a current and valid airman medical certificate is revoked or rescinded for any offense—including, among others, substance abuse, excessive speeding, careless and reckless operation of a vehicle, numerous traffic violations—the individual’s pilot certificate would not be valid until the license is reinstated.

 USHPA - Articles - Proposed FAA "Sport Pilot" Certification
This regulation made it clear that ultralight pilots, both powered and unpowered, were required to observe certain basic rules of VFR flight operations, and to avoid activities that could endanger the lives and property of others.
Restrictions on the performance and capability of aircraft that could be flown by a Sport Pilot certificate holder would be relaxed to an increased empty weight (to a 1,200 pound maximum), an increased stall speed of 39 kcas, and the ability to fly two-place aircraft.
The Sport Pilot proposal is engineered to transition the majority of ultralight pilots from Part 103 to a conventional pilot certificate, and to transition modern ultralight aircraft from unproven, unregistered designs to proven, certified, inspected, and regulated designs.

Except for the STUDENT pilot certificate, which is, like the early universe, void of form, each pilot certificate type has one or more aircraft category/classes associated with it.
Certainly, the universe of tasks that a pilot applicant may be asked on a practical test is clearly defined by a series of documents known as the "Practical Test Standards" (PTS), but, well, you guessed it--more about this later.
Before issuing a certificate based on a foreign pilot license, the FAA needs to verify that the foreign license is authentic and valid.

 Airline - Tapesh.Com Forum
When flying for an airline, pilots are usually referred to as airline pilots, with the pilot in command often referred to as the captain.
Pilots making very large salaries are typically senior airline captains, while pilots making very small salaries are generally low-seniority first officers.
In practice, most pilots make reasonable average working salaries, though it is not particularly useful to talk about 'averages' because of the large variability.

 Deep Flight - H.O.T. [Flight School > Certification > Pilot Training/Licensing]
The term Sub Sea Aviators is used to draw the necessary distinction between conventional submersible pilots, and pilots of various diver operated craft (even nuclear submarines, that are also flown but are not relevant to the birth of Sub Sea Aviation).
The license will enable the pilot to fly the Aviator as "crew", and with the accumulation of additional flight experience (log time to be determined), the crew restriction will be removed.
The pilot in command of the AVIATOR will assume full responsibility for safe operation of the craft, including long range navigation, as well as a more independent capability for self-rescue (inherent in the AVIATOR).
