Pilot Membership Group

The MM&P Pilots Membership Group represents approximately 98 percent of all U.S. pilots engaged in piloting ships in the international trades. Included in the MM&P Pilots Group are pilots in all coastal states and Puerto Rico.

To be a member of the Pilots Group, you must be licensed as a pilot by a government agency (state or local pilotage authority) other than the U.S. Coast Guard.

Captain George A. Quick is the Pilot Group’s Vice President. Each local region has its own president, branch agent or chairman. Pilots who belong to the MM&P Pilot Membership group can participate in the MM&P Health Plan. Retirement plans are handled on a local basis. Training is offered, at cost, through MM&P’s Maritime Institute of Technology & Graduate Studies (MITAGS), the world’s premier maritime training facility.

On the national level, pilots benefit from the activities of the Maritime Institute of Research & Industrial Development (MIRAID), which represents MM&P in Washington, D.C., in contacts with members of Congress and the regulatory agencies.
