 The major, and generaly only tool of the trade for piloting is the helmsmen'​s console on any bridge of a major ship, or the pilot'​s console on most shuttles. The consoles on a large Starfleet ship for are more specalized. They serve thier exsistance and generaly not much more. On the other hand, Shuttles are manned with less people, so generaly any of the cockpit stations are sutable for piloting the craft. There are some cases where the shuttle has been setup differently,​ and one station is configured for piloting and the other for engineering and system ​ monitoring. Generaly though, you can just grab a seat and fly off. The major, and generaly only tool of the trade for piloting is the helmsmen'​s console on any bridge of a major ship, or the pilot'​s console on most shuttles.

 When piloting, make sure you get a very good feel of how the craft reacts to input. A shuttle will react generaly faster then a large ship will. Sometimes even shuttles/​ships of the same class can react differently due to engineer differences,​ field modifications and so on. Always make sure you are aware of the shuttle'​s '​emotions',​ or how it reacts in situations. Knowing this will save your ass one day. Now, you are ready to sit down and being manuvering the ship. Well, not quite yet at least. I am going to assume you are learning on a shuttle, because its the most common thing to learn on. On a shuttle you need to go through a simple checklist. The checklist is normaly provided to you, but it generaly includes: When piloting, make sure you get a very good feel of how the craft reacts to input.
