Do pilot skills effect the ship when a different crew member is at the helm?

Hi,

As the subject says, do pilot skills effect the ship when a different crew member is at the helm?

Reason I ask is that playing 2 player I have to captain but also have to wrestle flight control from the AI Pilot bot for any manoeuvre more complex than jumping to the next system. If the bot's skills aren't effecting the ship when I pilot then I'd rather just not have him around. Even when I have grown my crew to 5 players I would like to know if it's a good idea to juggle roles when the Pilot fancies heading planet-side for a change.

Thanks,

Yes, they do.

If you want proof they do, go max speed without pibot, then put pibot into the game with the maxed thrusters talent.

Ah yes, see that now :?

I'll drop pilot bot's desire to helm a few notches then :)
