handover by pilot / taking charge by pilot

neutral  BrigitteHilgner: I have my doubts - no google hit for "handover by pilot" (okay, that's no guarantee for anything). Moreover, I think this is about the taking on board of a pilot respectively the leaving of a pilot.

disagree  hazmatgerman (X): The pilot - except in Suez and Panama - does not take over but remains in advisory position, contrary to what the lay public might have heard.
